Step 1: Download and install OpenSSL

Step 1: Download and install OpenSSL

The open-source OpenSSL toolkit provides a full-strength general purpose cryptography library to operate along with the PKCS sample implementation for encrypted authentication of native client credentials.

Follow these instructions to download and install OpenSSL for your specific operating system.

The GemFire native client requires OpenSSL 1.0.1s or later. For Windows platforms, you can use either the regular or the OpenSSL 1.0.1s "Light" version.

Note: If you use Cygwin, it is recommended that you do not use the OpenSSL library that comes with Cygwin because it is built with cygwin.dll as a dependency.

Linux

Download the OpenSSL tarball archive from the OpenSSL web site at http://www.openssl.org/source/. Copy the downloaded tarball file into NativeClient_xxxx/templates/security/openssl/Linux and run buildit.sh.

Solaris

Download the OpenSSL tarball archive from the OpenSSL web site at http://www.openssl.org/source/. Copy the downloaded tarball file into NativeClient_xxxx/templates/security/openssl/SunOS and run buildit.sh.

Windows

Download the installer for OpenSSL from http://www.openssl.org/related/binaries.html. You can also use the OpenSSL "Light" version.

Use the downloaded OpenSSL installer to install it on Windows. You can usually accept the default installation path (C:\OpenSSL).
