LibreSSL 2.2.4 released October 15, 2015
LibreSSL 2.3.1 released November 2, 2015

LibreSSL is a version of the TLS/crypto stack forked from OpenSSL in 2014, with goals of modernizing the codebase, improving security, and applying best practice development processes.

Primary development occurs inside the OpenBSD source tree with the usual care the project is known for.
On a regular basis the code is re-packaged for portable use by other operating systems (Linux, FreeBSD, Windows, etc).

The latest stable release is 2.2.4
The latest snapshot release is 2.3.1
2.1.x and 2.2.x are the currently-supported stable branches.
See the Releases page for support information.

LibreSSL is composed of four parts:

  • The openssl(1) utility, which provides tools for managing keys, certificates, etc.
  • libcrypto: a library of cryptography fundamentals
  • libssl: a TLS library, backwards-compatible with OpenSSL
  • libtls: a new TLS library, designed to make it easier to write foolproof applications

LibreSSL is supported financially by the OpenBSD Foundation and the OpenBSD Project. Please consider helping our efforts.
