OpenSSL 0.9.8c compiled from source code distribution with necessary patches as per the list below.
Patch Name Version Comments
Time-Stamping 20060923-0.9.8c required for Time-Stamping
nCipher CHIL 0.9.8a to support nCipher HSM
Before you compile your OpenSSL toolkit, you will need to apply the Time-Stamping patch and optionally a Cryptographic Hardware Interface Library patch for interfacing nCipher HSM devices. Both patches are provided with the source distribution of Digi-CA™ and you may find them in the OpenSSL/patches sub-directory of your Digi-CA™ source distribution package. Visit OpenSSL website on www.openssl.org to download the OpenSSL cryptographic toolkit. When configuring and compiling this toolkit, ensure you compile its libraries as dynamically shared. To perform a quick installation, use the Quick Installation guide provided below.
The Quick Installation Guide [QIG] for OpenSSL 0.9.8c suggests that you change working directory to the location where you saved the OpenSSL toolkit source distribution release. For the purpose of this installation guide, we will assume you have saved the OpenSSL toolkit in /usr/local/src directory.
Using tar, unpack files from the archive:
