OpenSSL Cookbook 3rd Edition now available

February 01, 2021

Another year, another book to update. The third edition of OpenSSL Cookbook, my free book that covers command-line usage of OpenSSL, is now available for your pleasure. Although the structure of the book remains the same, it’s been significantly updated with the help of Matt Caswell, a member of the OpenSSL development team. The largest change, of course, is that the material is now fully up to date with TLS 1.3.

There are two chapters in the book. The first chapter covers installation and configuration, key and certificate management. It also provides instructions and templates for how to build your own private CA. The second chapter, on the other hand, focuses on testing configuration of TLS servers.

Enjoy!
