What is the OpenSSL toolkit?

Alessandro A. Garbagnati

I think that the OpenSSL toolkit is one of the names of the OpenSSL Project, at least according to this statement that can be found on the about page of the OpenSSL web site:

The OpenSSL Project is a collaborative effort to develop a robust, commercial-grade, full-featured, and Open Source toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols as well as a full-strength general purpose cryptography library. managed by a worldwide community of volunteers that use the Internet to communicate, plan, and develop the OpenSSL toolkit and its related documentation.
