OQS-OpenSSL_1_0_2-stable snapshot 2018-11


The Open Quantum Safe (OQS) project has the goal of developing and prototyping quantum-resistant cryptography. More information on OQS can be found on our website: and on Github at

liboqs is an open source C library for quantum-resistant cryptographic algorithms.

open-quantum-safe/openssl is an integration of liboqs into (a fork of) OpenSSL. The goal of this integration is to provide easy prototyping of quantum-resistant cryptography. The integration should not be considered "production quality".

This branch of our fork of OpenSSL aims to provide integration of post-quantum algorithms from liboqs into TLS 1.2 in OpenSSL 1.0.2.

This branch of our fork of OpenSSL can be used with the following versions of liboqs:

  • liboqs master branch 0.1.0
  • liboqs nist-branch 2018-11 snapshot

Release notes

This snapshot of the OQS fork of OpenSSL 1.0.2 (OQS-OpenSSL_1_0_2-stable) was released on November 13, 2018. Its release page on Github is

What's New

This is the third snapshot release of OQS-OpenSSL_1_0_2-stable.

It syncs the fork with the upstream OpenSSL 1.0.2p release.

There are no algorithmic changes since the last release. However, since the last snapshot release, OQS-OpenSSL_1_0_2-stable now builds against the liboqs master branch, and Windows builds have been fixed.

Future work

Snapshot releases of OQS-OpenSSL_1_0_2-stable will be made approximately bi-monthly. These will include syncing the branch with upstream releases of OpenSSL, and changes required to sync with new releases of liboqs.
