Build openssl (with SSLv2/3 support for security testing)
# Get latest OpenSSL 1.0.2 version from
# v1.1.0 seems to have removed SSLv2/3 support
# Build OpenSSL
tar -xvf openssl-$openssl_version.tar.gz
cd openssl-$openssl_version
# --prefix will make sure that make install copies the files locally instead of system-wide
# --openssldir will make sure that the binary will look in the regular system location for openssl.cnf
# no-shared builds a mostly static binary
./config --prefix=`pwd`/local --openssldir=/usr/lib/ssl enable-ssl2 enable-ssl3 no-shared
make depend
# -i continues on errors, since make install may try to put some files in /usr/lib/ssl, which we don't want
make -i install
# Install just the binary so we can use s_client -ssl2
sudo cp local/bin/openssl /usr/local/bin/
# Cleanup
cd ..
rm -rf openssl-$openssl_version
rm openssl-$openssl_version.tar.gz
# To test:
# $ openssl s_client -connect -ssl2
