CRYPTO Application Programming Interface (API) Reference
This reference section includes the OpenSSL Crypto APIs, and is based on information provided by The Open Group. This information can also be found at the following URL
The OpenSSL Crypto library implements a wide range of cryptographic algorithms used in various Internet standards. The services provided by this library are used by the OpenSSL implementations of SSL, TLS and S/MIME, and they have also been used to implement SSH, OpenPGP, and other cryptographic standards. The Crypto library consists of a number of sublibraries that implement the individual algorithms. The functionality includes symmetric encryption, public key cryptography and key agreement, certificate handling, cryptographic hash functions and a cryptographic pseudorandom number generator.
The Crypto library is provided in the form of a shareable image and is located at:
