OpenSSL Support in Oracle Solaris

Oracle Solaris supports two implementations of OpenSSL:

  • FIPS 140 capable OpenSSL

  • Non FIPS 140 capable OpenSSL

Both implementations have been upgraded to be compatible with the latest OpenSSL version from the OpenSSL project, which is OpenSSL 1.0.1. With regards to the versions libraries, both are API/ABI compatible.

While both implementations are present in the OS, only one implementation can be active at a time. To determine which OpenSSL implementation is active on the system, use the pkg mediator openssl command.
