Open Source Project Ports: Socat

Thanks to the portability of our wolfCrypt library, plus our team of expert engineers, wolfSSL is frequently adding new ports. Keep an eye out as we continue showcasing a few of the latest open source project ports over the next few weeks!

We have recently integrated wolfSSL with the socat tool for Linux. This port allows for the use of socat with our FIPS-validated crypto library, wolfCrypt. Socat is a command line based utility that allows for bidirectional data transfers between two independent channels. For more information on socat, please visit the project’s website at

As of wolfSSL version 4.8.0, we have enabled socat to be able to call into wolfSSL through the OpenSSL compatibility layer. You can access the GitHub page here:
