"If you have struggled with OpenSSL and the supplied documentation then you will regret the amount of time that you have wasted before finding this book. If you are planning to use OpenSSL then you need to buy a copy - it's essential reading. What is more surprising is that even if you don't plan to use OpenSSL, then downloading it and trying out the examples in the book could be the education in practical cryptography you really need. What more can I say of any book, other than that I certainly won't be lending it to anyone else? It's going to remain firmly chained to my bookshelf for the foreseeable future - and no, you can't borrow it." - Mike James, VSJ, October 2003
This volume is designed to enable developers to use The OpenSSL library more effectively. It offers guidance on avoiding pitfalls, while taking advantage of the library's advanced features and provides the information necessary to use OpenSSL safely and effectively. In step-by-step fashion, the book details the challenges in securing network communications, and shows you how to use OpenSSL tools to best meet those challenges. System and network administrator should benefit from the thorough treatment of the OpenSSL command-line interface, as well as from step-by-step directions for obtaining certificates and setting up certification authority. Developer should benefit from the in-depth discussions and examples of how to use OpenSSL in their own programs. Although OpenSSL is written in C, information on how to use OpenSSL with Perl, Python and PHP is also included.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
Derzeit tritt ein Problem beim Filtern der Rezensionen auf. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal.
Leider wurde das Buch nicht mehr aktualisiert und spiegelt den Softwarestand basierend auf OpenSSL 0.9.6c im Jahre 2002 wieder. Zumindest dieser Teil ist in sehr guter O'Reilly Qualität.
Für die aktuelle Applikationsentwicklung ist das heute aber zu wenig.
Neben vielen Beispielen finde ich vorallem die entsprechenden Warnungen nützlich, wo durch falsches Verwenden der Bibliothek die Sicherheit gefährded würde.

That said, if you *must* use OpenSSL for some reason or other, then this book is the missing user manual that the library so desperately needs. It does a good job explaining the library APIs, both libssl and libcrypto, and additionally provides worked examples of common implementation tasks. It explains things well enough that, once you've read through it and rewritten the examples on your own, the library begins to make some sort of *sense* - if such a thing is really possible - and, if you combine this book with the library docs (which will now be less confusing) and the source for the OpenSSL command-line tools (which will now even be *legible*!), you now stand a chance of successfully building something useful.
There is an important caveat: this book was written for a much earlier version of OpenSSL, and thus certain important features are referred to by the book as "not yet available" or are simply not mentioned. That said, this will be less of an obstacle once you reach the point when the library begins to make its own strange sort of sense.
If your project requires OpenSSL, and there's really no way around it, then get this book. It will save you *months* of fruitlessly spinning your wheels, and it will get you on track.
The SSL library is C-library easily compiled as C++, and ported to PHP, PERL and JAVA etc.
It can be as has been compiled under Windows, Mac and Linux. OpenSSL is even shipped with Mac and Linux.
The OpenSSL package basically consists of two parts (i) the SSL part and (ii) the cryptographic library.
Given the large cross-platform functionality it should not come as a surprise that the souce code documentation is not always up to date.
This book is a welcome guide to OpenSSL. I guess that the vast majority of programmers developing secure programs use OpenSSL, either directly or indirectly. Without the book one has to continuously search on the Internet for code examples.
In this book all aspects of OpenSSL programming are illustrated with real life C examples. I have downloaded the source code of quite a number and I found them extremely helpful.
The OpenSSL package has also a number of utilities that can be run from the command line. This books describes it and gives some real examples. I have tried them all successfully.
The book describes SSL/TLS programming, symmetric encryption (low-level and intermediate level), Hashes/MACS, and Public Key cryptography.
I think reading this book, together with Cryptography Engineering: Design Principles and Practical Applications will end your status as a cryptography amateur.
It does contain some useful information, hence the 2 stars, but the authors' horrible writing style and inability to organize their thoughts really makes me want to give a 1-star review. Terrible book, although still better than the online documentation overall. And unfortunately, no one appears to have a written a better one (as of July 2009).
I am hoping that the author will publish a new version to cover the 1.0 release.
Very easy read for an experienced C/C++ developer with a number of code examples.
I give this book an 8+ and is a permanent part of my coding library.
As others have noted, this is a great book for programming. It's not as detailed if you are looking to set up your own PKI. Basically it is about 30 pages of the openssl command (using symmetric keys, generating private keys, making certificates, signing them) and ~270 pages or so of programming.
