=head1 NAME
OSSL_PROVIDER-legacy - OpenSSL legacy provider
=head1 DESCRIPTION
The OpenSSL legacy provider supplies OpenSSL implementations of algorithms
that have been deemed legacy. Such algorithms have commonly fallen out of
use, have been deemed insecure by the cryptography community, or something
similar.
We can consider this the retirement home of cryptographic algorithms.
=head2 Properties
The implementations in this provider specifically has this property
defined:
=over 4
=item "provider=legacy"
=back
It may be used in a property query string with fetching functions such as
L<EVP_MD_fetch(3)> or L<EVP_CIPHER_fetch(3)>, as well as with other
functions that take a property query string, such as
L<EVP_PKEY_CTX_new_from_name(3)>.
It isn't mandatory to query for any of these properties, except to
make sure to get implementations of this provider and none other.
=head1 OPERATIONS AND ALGORITHMS
The OpenSSL legacy provider supports these operations and algorithms:
=head2 Hashing Algorithms / Message Digests
=over 4
=item MD2, see L<EVP_MD-MD2(7)>
=item MD4, see L<EVP_MD-MD4(7)>
=item MDC2, see L<EVP_MD-MDC2(7)>
=item WHIRLPOOL, see L<EVP_MD-WHIRLPOOL(7)>
=item RIPEMD160, see L<EVP_MD-RIPEMD160(7)>
=back
=head2 Symmetric Ciphers
Not all of these symmetric cipher algorithms are enabled by default.
=over 4
=item Blowfish
=item CAST
=item DES
The algorithm names are: DES_ECB, DES_CBC, DES_OFB, DES_CFB, DES_CFB1, DES_CFB8
and DESX_CBC.
=item RC2
=item RC4
=item RC5
Disabled by default. Use I<enable-rc5> config option to enable.
=item SEED
=back
=begin comment
When algorithms for other operations start appearing, the
following =head2 titles are appropriate to use:
- Message Authentication Code (MAC)
- Key Derivation Function (KDF)
- Key Exchange
- Signature
- Asymmetric Cipher
- Asymmetric Key Management
