Information in this document applies to any platform.
With the Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) installation comes with a libcrypto.so.1.0.0 file located in $IFW_HOME/lib/ folder. This library is global and is shared with other binaries of the Operating System (OS).
This interface provides a suite of functions for performing encryption/decryption (both symmetric and asymmetric), signing/verifying, as well as generating hashes and MAC codes, across the full range of OpenSSL supported algorithms and modes.
Working with the high level interface means that a lot of the complexity of performing cryptographic operations is hidden from view. A single consistent API is provided. In the event that you need to change your code to use a different algorithm (for example),
then this is a simple change when using the high level interface.
There is a know issues when libcrypto.so.1.0.0 version delivered by BRM causes other OS commands to fail.
