meta-wolfssl Layer for #Yocto and #OpenEmbedded

We have been working within OpenEmbedded and the Yocto Project to develop an Open Source SSL/TLS layer designed for incorporating wolfSSL into custom Linux builds for embedded systems. meta-wolfssl contains three completed recipes including the wolfSSL library as well as the wolfCrypt test and benchmark executables. You can now test and send information quickly and securely through your embedded device using our portable and lightweight SSL/TLS library.

These recipes can be easily incorporated into any bitbake build, specifically through the use of the OpenEmbedded and Yocto Project utilities. For our original construction, we ran a custom version of core-image-sato (a mobile image platform) on the Minnowboard.

The meta-wolfssl github page includes detailed instructions for installing any of these recipes in your build image. Check back for future updates regarding meta-wolfssl and OpenEmbedded/Yocto.
