What is OpenSSL? Full-featured toolkit for the Transport Layer Security and Secure Sockets Layer protocols. It is a robust, commercial-grade, and full-featured toolkit for the Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocols. It is also a general-purpose cryptography library.
Virgil Security and OpenSSL can be primarily classified as "Security" tools.
Some of the features offered by Virgil Security are:
- End-to-end encryption
- Passwordless authentication
- Data verification
On the other hand, OpenSSL provides the following key features:
