QUIC and OpenSSL

,

QUIC is a new protocol which the IETF talks about as A UDP-Based Multiplexed and Secure Transport, and has attracted a lot of attention lately. The OpenSSL Management Committee (OMC) have followed the development with interest, and we feel that we owe it to the community to say where we stand on this, and on the inclusion of support for this protocol in our libraries.

OpenSSL 3.0 and FIPS Update

,

As mentioned in a previous blog post, OpenSSL team members met with various representatives of the FIPS sponsor organisations back in September last year to discuss design and planning for the new FIPS module development project.

Since then there has been much design work taking place and we are now able to publish the draft design documentation. You can read about how we see the longer term architecture of OpenSSL changing in the future here and you can read about our specific plans for OpenSSL 3.0 (our next release which will include a FIPS validated module) here.
