Description : SSL library, forked from OpenSSL
LibreSSL strives to maintain API compatibility with OpenSSL, but
do away with all the cruft.
After a long series of OpenSSL problems, recently highlighted by
the infamous Heartbleed bug, a group inside OpenBSD decided to
fork OpenSSL and adapt the code to modern coding standards.
Along the way, a lot of compatibility with older architectures
and toolchains was discarded.
