Just a marker for someone to work from at this point.

libressl.org

LibreSSL is a version of the TLS/crypto stack forked from OpenSSL in 2014, with goals of modernizing the codebase, improving security, and applying best practice development processes.

Primary development occurs inside the OpenBSD source tree with the usual care the project is known for.
On a regular basis the code is re-packaged for portable use by other operating systems (Linux, FreeBSD, Windows, etc).

The latest stable release is 2.5.5
The latest development release is 2.6.1
See the releases page for support information.

LibreSSL releases contain several parts:

libcrypto: a library of cryptography fundamentals
libssl: a TLS library, backwards-compatible with OpenSSL
libtls: a new TLS library, designed to make it easier to write foolproof applications
Various utilities such as openssl(1), nc(1), and ocspcheck(1).

It came from one of my other lists as something worth considering.

So, now for the loaded question...

Is there a pet for this? I'm sure some folks would like something a bit more stable than the OpenSSL variety.

OTOH, I know this is an important file-set, and rather complex in linking and location. I haven't bothered with a straight D/L of this for Slackware-based puppy, Uncle Slacky gets particular in where things are located.
