It is part of the OpenSSL implementation of SSL.
You need it to perform certain cryptographic actions like: - Creation of RSA, DH and DSA key parameters; - Creation of X.509 certificates, CSRs and CRLs; - Calculation of message digests; - Encryption and decryption with ciphers; - SSL/TLS client and server tests; - Handling of S/MIME signed or encrypted mail.

openssl ships optimized libraries for some cpus. The loading of these libraries depends on the ability of the dynamic linker to automaticly search additional directories depending on the cpu. If you want to find out which are these directories for your computer, run the following command: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib strace true 2>&1 | fgrep "open(\"/usr/lib" On a Pentium III this gives: open("/usr more»
