Bug#332498: RFH: openssl -- Secure Socket Layer (SSL) binary and related cryptographic tools
I request assistance with maintaining the openssl package.
I am currently the only maintainer, but this package really needs a
team to work on it. Too many packages depend on the library which
therefore has priority important.
The package description is:
This package contains the openssl binary and related tools.
It is part of the OpenSSL implementation of SSL.
You need it to perform certain cryptographic actions like:
o Creation of RSA, DH and DSA Key Parameters
o Creation of X.509 Certificates, CSRs and CRLs
o Calculation of Message Digests
o Encryption and Decryption with Ciphers
o SSL/TLS Client and Server Tests
o Handling of S/MIME signed or encrypted Mail
