- MODIFYING OPENSSL SOURCE
- This document describes the way to add custom modifications to OpenSSL sources.
- If you are adding new public functions to the custom library build, you need to
- either add a prototype in one of the existing OpenSSL header files;
- or provide a new header file and edit
- to pick up that file.
- After that perform the following steps:
- ./Configure -Werror --strict-warnings [your-options]
- make update
- make test
- `make update` ensures that your functions declarations are added to
- `util/libcrypto.num` or `util/libssl.num`.
- If you plan to submit the changes you made to OpenSSL
- (see [CONTRIBUTING.md](CONTRIBUTING.md)), it's worth running:
- make doc-nits
- after running `make update` to ensure that documentation has correct format.
- `make update` also generates files related to OIDs (in the `crypto/objects/`
- folder) and errors.
- If a merge error occurs in one of these generated files then the
- generated files need to be removed and regenerated using `make update`.
- To aid in this process the generated files can be committed separately
- so they can be removed easily.
