installing Openssl

Hello,
I'm wanting to install WBEMSvcs A.02.07.06, but it wants OpenSSL_A.00.09.08l.001 as a prerequisite. Could the installation of OpenSSL have any effect on our HP Secure Shell?

OpenSSL is a large download with many filesets, are there any issues I should be aware of as far as the effect on other areas of the system? Thanks,

Brian

Re: installing Openssl

Hi,

OpenSSL offers an advanced level of security using the SSL/TLS protocols. Client-server applications that send and receive data over a network are open to a range of vulnerabilities. They can use SSL/TLS to implement privacy (through encryption), tamper-proofing (through message digests) and non-repudiation (through certificates and digital signatures).

Regards,
Durvesh

if you follow the link you will find a depot for hp-ux :

before you are install the sw, use readme and use -p ( for preview mode ) to know what could happen.
