As many people know, the OpenSSL project is struggling with FIPS. OpenSSL had plans to restore it’s FIPS validation with OpenSSL 3.0, however they ran into significant delays, and since FIPS 140-2 testing ends September 2021, OpenSSL ultimately decided to focus their efforts on FIPS 140-3 standards.
This means that OpenSSL users will not have a supported package for the indefinite future. This is a big issue for companies that rely on security.
To fill this breach, wolfSSL has integrated our FIPS-certified crypto module (wolfCrypt) with OpenSSL as an OpenSSL engine. We’re calling it wolfEngine. wolfEngine is structured as a separate standalone library which links against wolfSSL (libwolfssl) and OpenSSL. wolfEngine implements and exposes an OpenSSL engine implementation which wraps the wolfCrypt native API internally. Algorithm support matches that as listed on the wolfCrypt FIPS 140-2 certificate #3389.
