LibreSSL: TLS Library for Developers

LibreSSL_logoLibreSSL is a free TLS library from the OpenBSD foundation used to develop secure applications. It was started in 2014 in response to the Heartbleed bug found in OpenSSL.

LibreSSL was started as a fork of OpenSSL version 1.0.1g. It aims to provide backwards compatibility with applications written using OpenSSL. OpenBSD is currently the only supported operating system, with future plans to support other POSIX based operating systems. LibreSSL is is dual-licensed under both an Apache style license and the BSD license.

For more information about TLS, and developing secure applications, check out our page on TLS for Applications. Or visit the IETF’s Using TLS in Applications (UTA) working group.
