Definition - What does SSLeay mean?
Techopedia explains SSLeay
SSLeay shares a common type of interface with another SSL tool, OpenSSL. IT Experts consider OpenSSL as a "fork" project of SSLeay. Features of OpenSSL include cryptographic functionality and code libraries, as well as wrappers that make the libraries compatible with different types of code languages. Actual uses show that OpenSSL and SSLeay are used similarly, and sometimes interchangeably, and that users may have some issues in replacing one with the other, especially in some software environments.
