Topic: New CyaSSL Layer Available for Yocto and OpenEmbedded

Do you currently use the Yocto Project or OpenEmbedded?  We would like to announce the availability of the “meta-yassl” layer for both Yocto and OpenEmbedded.  This layer adds support for the lightweight CyaSSL embedded SSL library to these projects and can be easily added to your existing Yocto or OpenEmbedded setup.  The layer can be found on GitHub at the following URL:

If you are not familiar with the Yocto Project, it is an “open source collaboration project that provides templates, tools and methods to help you create custom Linux-based systems for embedded products regardless of the hardware architecture.”  You can learn more about Yocto at or OpenEmbedded at

As a reminder, CyaSSL is open source and dual licensed under both the GPLv2 as well as a standard commercial license.  This means you are free to prototype with, test with, or use CyaSSL free of charge under the terms of the GPLv2.  If your project will need a commercial license or you would like commercial support direct from yaSSL, please contact us and we’ll be happy to give you more details.

If you have any questions about the new meta-yassl layer, the CyaSSL embedded SSL library, or how we can help you integrate SSL into your project, please contact us at
