BRISBANE, Australia, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cryptsoft, the OEM provider of choice for KMIP (Key Management Interoperability Protocol) technology, has this week announced full support of the latest release from the OpenSSL team – OpenSSL v1.1.0. Following the OpenSSL team's announcement on August 25th (https://www.openssl.org/news/openssl-1.1.0-notes.html), Cryptsoft has deployed support for the new version across the entire range of Cryptsoft products that utilise the open source cryptographic provider.
The addition of this support reflects the initiative demonstrated by the global security industry to stand behind OpenSSL both financially and through significant contributions of time and effort, spearheaded by the Linux Foundations Core Infrastructure Initiative.
"The OpenSSL v1.1.0 release marks completion of more than two years of effort by the OpenSSL team, the OpenSSL development community, and numerous security researchers on improving the most widely deployed open source TLS implementation. As an OEM security technology provider, we strive to ensure our customers have access to the latest security tools to better secure their customers," said Tim Hudson, CTO Cryptsoft. "This release significantly improves the security model of OpenSSL and provides many features to ensure that developers are supported in making the safer cryptographic choices when implementing security. Cryptsoft now enables all customers of our KMIP SDKs to immediately benefit from this new release."
"OpenSSL is a critical component of the world's security infrastructure," said Dr. Nicko van Someren, CTO of the Linux Foundation. "The release of OpenSSL v1.1.0 is a major milestone, representing many man-years of work by the OpenSSL team and we are pleased to have significantly contributed to this release through funding from our Core Infrastructure Initiative. We are delighted to see Cryptsoft releasing full support for the latest version of this vital Open Source library so quickly."
