OQS-OpenSSL_1_1_1-stable snapshot 2021-08


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 in TLS 1.3, X.509 certificates, CMS, and S/MIME. The integration should not be considered "production quality".

Release notes

This is the 2021-08 snapshot release of OQS-OpenSSL, which was released on August 11, 2021. This release is intended to be used with liboqs version 0.7.0.
