    Determine Version of OpenSSL Software used by an Ex Libris Product

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Know the exact version of the OpenSSL software used by an Ex Libris product.

    (1) Log on to the server as the UNIX user who owns the Ex Libris software (e.g. user aleph).

    (2) Verify that an OpenSSL software package provided by Ex Libris is installed.
    Aleph Example:
    $ which openssl

    $ ls -l /exlibris/aleph/a22_1/product/bin/openssl
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 aleph exlibris [...] /exlibris/aleph/a22_1/product/bin/openssl -> /exlibris/product/openssl-0.9.8y/bin/openssl

    The executable file openssl needs to be found within the directory tree /exlibris/product.

    (3) Determine the version of the executable file openssl with the following command:
    $ openssl version
    OpenSSL 0.9.8y 5 Feb 2013

        Aleph 22 has OpenSSL 0.9.8y  {but can be upgraded to OpenSSL 1.0.2k by running  "Download the Third-Party Product Updates (util SP 6-10)" }. 

        Aleph 23 has OpenSSL 1.0.2k.
