OpenSSL 0.9.8 shared objects are removed from AIX 7.2 libcrypto.a and libssl.a in 7200-05-07. The compat libraries (libcrypto_compat.a and libssl_compat.a) are also removed.
The command line tools openssl and openssl64 are rebuilt with OpenSSL 3.0 in 7200-05-07.
IBM recommends ensuring the following prior to updating to AIX 7200-05-07:
- applications are not dependent on OpenSSL 0.9.8 shared objects
- No legacy algorithms such as MD2, blowfish are used as arguments for openssl command line.
See the 7200-05 release notes for more information.
