With each release of the wolfSSL embedded SSL/TLS library, new improvements and feature additions are always included. The wolfSSL team has made sure to improve and update support for various open source projects. This holiday release wolfSSL 4.3.0, we are happy to say we have improved our support for Nginx. wolfSSL has updated support for Nginx 1.15.1 and added support for Nginx 1.16.1.
For those who are unfamiliar, Nginx is a high-performance, high-concurrency web server. Like wolfSSL, it is also compact, fast, and highly scalable. Additionally, wolfSSL also provides support for TLS 1.3 and features such as OCSP, so Nginx servers can be configured with the latest and most secure protocols.
Nginx and wolfSSL make a likely pairing because they are both lean, compact, fast, and scale well under high volumes of connections. wolfSSL + Nginx is available in a public GitHub repository. The configure option –enable-nginx will compile the wolfSSL libraries with Nginx support.
