OpenSSL Adopts Mission & Values Statement


After extensive feedback from our communities, OpenSSL is pleased to announce that we have formally adopted the Mission and Values Statement, and will now be aligning our activities to support these.

You can view our new Mission and Values Statment here.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all those who provided feedback to us. We have reviewed all the comments and responses, which showed that a clear majority (around 70%) agreed on OpenSSL adopting the Mission and Values Statement. It was really beneficial to hear from our various communities and we will continue to seek out your feedback in the future.

To show our appreciation we have decided to extend the free OpenSSL T-shirt offer to all respondents and will be contacting you shortly to arrange sizing and delivery.

While it was clear from your feedback that we have a way to go before we meet our Mission and Values Statement, formally adopting this is the first step along the path to a more transparent and open OpenSSL. We hope that you will continue to support us as we move forward.
