NewsLibreSSL releases first ports to non-BSD operating systems. PinmemberDan Neely11-Jul-14 10:14 
The first release of LibreSSL portable has been released. LibreSSL can be found in the LibreSSL directory of your favorite OpenBSD mirror.
 
http://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/LibreSSL has it, and other mirrors will soon.
 
libressl-2.0.0.tar.gz has been tested to build on various versions of Linux, Solaris, Mac OSX, and FreeBSD.
 
This is intended as an initial release to allow the community to start using and providing feedback. We will be adding support for other platforms as time and resources permit.

 
It's not the first port out; but may be the first that's safe to use. Most (all?) of the 3rd party attempts ended up with security problems from replacing BSD OS/library functions with replacements that didn't have the same built in security constraints. (ex Zeroize functions that weren't marked to prevent the compiler from optimizing them away, and functions that were vulnerable to timing attacks instead of being constant time.)
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
