This repository provides the LibreSSL alternative to OpenSSL packaged for Debian.
It currently provides four packages, similar to the OpenSSL packages in Debian:
/usr/bin/openssland such, conflicts with the Debian
libressl-doc: development documentation
libressl2.3: LibreSSL libraries
libcrypto.so. Libary versions should differ to the OpenSSL ones, thus should be possible to co-exist with e.g.
libressl-dev: Development files, conflicts with the Debian
This repository should build LibreSSL simply by cloning it and building it, preferably with pbuilder.
If you have setup a pbuilder environment, build the package by running
pdebuild in the cloned repository.
In order for applications to use LibreSSL instead, they need to be re-linked against LibreSSL instead of OpenSSL.
Many times, it is as simple as changing dependencies from
libressl-dev and rebuild the package.
It might be useful to rebuild packages inside a pbuilder environment to avoid conflicts with
