wolfSSL Cisco CJOSE Port

The wolfSSL embedded SSL/TLS library has maintained support for the Cisco CJOSE library since version 4.4.0. CJOSE implements Javascript Object Signing and Encryption (JOSE) in C/C++. JOSE is a framework that allows parties to exchange transfer claims in a secure way. The CJOSE library has been ported to work with wolfSSL, the best tested crypto library on the market.

To build wolfSSL for CJOSE:

  • ./configure --enable-opensslall --enable-aeskeywrap CPPFLAGS='-DHAVE_EX_DATA -DWOLFSSL_KEY_GEN'
  • make
  • make install

To build CJOSE for wolfSSL:

  • Download the appropriate patch from https://github.com/wolfSSL/osp/tree/master/cjose. Choose a patch that corresponds or is closest to your version of cjose.
  • patch -p1 < <path/to/downloaded/patch>
  • autoreconf
  • ./configure --with-wolfssl=/usr/local
  • make

To verify that this build passes the tests, run:

  • make check
