Really exiting news.  If I'm not mistaken, this would be the first free,
crypto library that has FIPS 140 module certification!  Other free
libraries have algorithms that have been FIPS 140 certified, but the whole
hasn't been certified (exemple Cryptlib and Crypto++).

And OpenSSL crypto module runs on all kinds of platforms.  Really nice!
