OpenSSL 3.0 Provider Solution with FIPS

As you may know, wolfSSL has integrated our FIPS-certified crypto module, wolfCrypt, with OpenSSL as an OpenSSL engine, in a product we call wolfEngine. OpenSSL 3.0 has done away with the engines paradigm in favor of a new concept, called providers. wolfSSL now has a FIPS 140-2 solution for an OpenSSL 3.0 provider, allowing you to use the latest version of OpenSSL backed by our FIPS-certified wolfCrypt library.

wolfSSL is also in the process of getting certified for FIPS 140-3.  Once certified, our OpenSSL 3.0 provider solution will also be FIPS 140-3 ready. Like wolfEngine, the wolfSSL provider for OpenSSL is an excellent pathway for users looking to get FIPS compliance fast while still using OpenSSL.
