Most of you already know what OpenSSL is. Well, I will write an article about that too, it will include both theoric and practical information. Before that article, let me show you how to check the openssl you already have on your Linux boxL
openssl version -a
You will get something like this:
OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007
That means I am using OpenSSL 0.9.8g.
