Answers to Common Questions from RSA – Part 2

To continue our series of commonly-asked questions which we were asked at the 2011 RSA conference, we will be answering the following questions:

If wolfSSL is open source, then how do you make money?

Q:  Can you port wolfSSL to my platform?

yaSSL offers a range of consulting services in order to help you optimize our products for your environment and project. One of the services we offer is the porting of our products (including wolfSSL) to new host languages and new operating environments.

We also provide feature additions (adding additional features you may need which are not currently in our products), and for those of you who are trying to move from an outdated or expensive SSL library, we offer a competitive upgrade program. You can read more about our consulting services on our About page, or by emailing us directly at

Q:  If wolfSSL is open source, then how do you make money?

We are strong believers in open source, and as such, make our products freely available under the GPLv2. As you may know, our products are dual licensed under both the GPLv2 and standard commercial licensing. We make money primarily from the following three areas:

– Commercial License Sales
– Support Packages
– Consulting Work
