If your job has something to do with security, web development, or system administration, you can’t avoid having to deal with OpenSSL on at least some level. This book is intended primarily for OpenSSL users who need to perform routine tasks of key and certificate generation and configure programs that rely on OpenSSL for SSL/TLS functionality.
The third edition of OpenSSL Cookbook, my free book that covers command-line usage of OpenSSL, is now available for your pleasure. Although the structure of the book remains the same, it’s been significantly updated with the help of Matt Caswell, a member of the OpenSSL development team. $ openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -nodes -sha256 -out saml.crt -keyout saml.pem That command line will produce two files saml.crt - the certificate with a public key, and saml.pem - your private key. 1-16 of 47 results for 'OpenSSL' Network Security with OpenSSL. By John Viega, Matt. Windows Server 2016 Security, Certificates, and Remote Access Cookbook.
Archive 2021 OpenSSL Cookbook 3rd Edition now available February 01, 2021 2020 Second edition of Bulletproof SSL and TLS now in preview November 01, 2020. OpenSSL is a true Swiss Army knife utility for cryptography-related use cases. It can do many tasks besides encrypting files. You can find out all the ways you can use it by accessing the OpenSSL docs page, which includes links to the manual, the OpenSSL Cookbook, frequently asked questions, and more.
The majority of the Internet is powered by open source products, and virtually all of those projects rely on OpenSSL. Apache httpd has long been a favorite, but it’s now being pursued by nginx, which is increasingly gaining in popularity. And, even in the Java camp, Apache Tomcat performs better when coupled with OpenSSL, replacing the native Java implementation of SSL/TLS.
As a bonus, the appendix includes the complete SSL/TLS Deployment Best Practices, a concise guide to secure development and deployment of web sites and other SSL/TLS services.
The book is available in PDF, EPUB, and Kindle formats. It is also continuously updated to stay current with changes to OpenSSL and the threats against encryption.
