OpenSSL v0.9.8l for Indy

Hi,

I just published an updated pre-compiled version of the OpenSSL libraries. They are available at the Fulgan Mirror.

Direct Link: openssl-0.9.8l-i386-win32.zip

You’ll find the ReadMe, License Information and File Hashes inside the zip.

This release takes care of the discovered TLS re-negotiation issue (currently by disabling re-negotiation). If you run into troubles be sure to check the OpenSSL page for hints too. It is recommended to use this version immediately.

Regards,
Arvid

  1. Hi,

    thank you, you’re welcome!

    @Rich: It’s mentioned inside the ReadMe.txt of the package ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I am using Mingw32/gcc for x32 and PSDK for x64. The Mingw is just for reducing the external dependencies – so you won’t have to install MS VC 7/8 runtimes on target systems not shipping them natively – i.e. like MS Win2k. That’s the main difference comparing those libraries to other pre-compiled ones like SLProWeb.

  2. HI, Arvid:
    Thank you.

    May I ask question? How should I do to generate the key and Cert. files for Indy?
    I navigated OpenSSL web site, but I don’t understand how to generate the files.
    How should I do ?

    Hi Carey,

    sorry for the late reply, I am getting a bit busy at the end of each year ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I need to check back to see if generating the certificates is possible using Indy. Externally you would use the OpenSSL executables (we are not shipping them). You could find them here: http://www.slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html

    A good explanation of using OpenSSL to build certificates can be found here: http://www.madboa.com/geek/openssl/#cert-self

    One thing to mention is that those self-signed certificates should solely be used for testing purposes. Typically you would buy SSL certificates i.e. from your web hoster.

    Cheers and Merry Christmas,

    Arvid

    • Hi Salvor,

      You’re welcome, thank you for your feedback! I just uploaded the updated libraries to the Fulgan Mirror, and I am going to blog about it right now!

      Cheers,
      Arvid
