OpenSSL is an internet security package doing encrypted communication.
The link given provides the source plus a lot of documentation for the interested.
I downloaded OpenSSL 0.9.6g.


Copy the openssl-0.9.6g.tar.gz (or the latest) into /opt/OpenSSL
There unzip gunzip openssl-0.9.6g.tar.gz and get *openssl-9_0_6g_tar.
untar this : tar xvf openssl-9_0_6g_tar and get a subdirectory /openssl-0.9.6g full of stuff.
Descend into this subdirectory.
There, the file INSTALL holds the necessary information.
The default approach is :
make test
make install

and SSL will be setup in /usr/local/ssl

That was it.
There are a few option that can be set - refer to the INSTALL

feedback welcome
