If I remember correctly there is a compile time flag for libssh2 to enable a strict fips mode.
I would guess this might break compatibility with some (probably older) ssh implementations that don't implement newer (optional) cyphers.
I wanted to know whether libssh2 1.4.2/1.4.3 are compatible with FIPS compliant OpenSSL version openssl-1.0.0-20 ?
I compiled libssh2 1.4.3 with this particular version of openssl and i could see that my application linking to this libssh crashes.
In other cases, my application runs successfully if i compile libssh2 1.4.3 with openssl-1.0.1e-16.
Could some one please shed light on this one?
Alternately please let me know whether i can configure libssh2 to use a particular set crypto algorithms supported by the openssl.
Thanking you on advance.
