how to use "my" openssl engine in openvpn?

Post by zahra » Tue Jun 30, 2015 9:41 am

Hi all
I created an engine in OpenSSL and I want to use it in OpenVPN. I made .so file and copied that to /usr/local/lib directory (this directory is fixed in OpenSSL configuration). I changed openssl.cnf. So OpenSSL recognized my engine. After that I changed option.c file in src directory in OpenVPN-2.3.2. I defined o->engine by my engine id. But that does not work...
this is my engine code:

Code: Select all

static int bind_fn(ENGINE * e, const char *id)
    if (!ENGINE_set_id(e, "sample") ||
    !ENGINE_set_name(e, "sample engine")) {    
    return 0;    
} else {    
        return 1;    
and I added below line in openssl.cnf:

Code: Select all

openssl_conf = openssl_def

engines = engines_section

sample = sample_section

engine_id = sample
dynamic_path = /path/   
init = 0    
default_algorithms = ALL    
distinguished_name = req_distinguished_name     

CRYPT_PARAMS = id-Gost28147-89-CryptoPro-A-ParamSet
finally in init_options method of options.c in openvpn src directory, I added this commands:

Code: Select all

const char * id = "sample";    
o->engine = id;
But sample engine is not recognized in openvpn :cry:
