Good question. I think that we want both, giving priority to OpenSSL if it is there. Usually their things prove to have more entropy, but I didn't look at their code to be honest. If we only use the OpenBSD stuff, it would be a good idea to refresh the in-core code. This is from OpenBSD of 2002. > TLS is complex, we don't want to do that in that case.

OK, after hacking that for a bit I have finished with option 2 and the set of PG-like set of routines, the use of USE_SSL in the file containing all the SHA functions of OpenBSD has proved to be really ugly, but with a split things are really clear to the eye. The stuff I got builds on OSX, Linux and MSVC. pgcrypto cannot link directly to libpgcommon.a, so I am making it compile directly with the source files, as it is doing on HEAD. > I'm not sure how common a build without openssl is in the real world though. > RPMs, DEBs, Windows installers etc all build with OpenSSL.

I don't think that it is this much common to have an enterprise-class build of Postgres without SSL, but each company has always its own reasons, so things could exist. And I continue to move on...
