Make page up-to-date, remove duplicate information (and refer to README.polarssl instead).


Since version 2.3, OpenVPN can be built using PolarSSL as it's crypto backend, instead of OpenSSL. See for more information on PolarSSL.

Limitations compared to OpenSSL

Note that the PolarSSL variant of OpenVPN does not support the same featureset as the OpenSSL variant. The most prominent differences are listed in the latest README.polarssl.

Building the PolarSSL-enabled OpenVPN

OpenVPN 2.3 has full PolarSSL support. Get the sources from the download page, or get the most recent (potentially unstable) code from github.

To build using polarssl:

./configure --with-crypto-library=polarssl
make install
