OpenSSL for Ruby
OpenSSL provides SSL, TLS and general purpose cryptography. It wraps the OpenSSL library.
The openssl gem is available at rubygems.org. You can install with:
gem install openssl
You may need to specify the path where OpenSSL is installed.
gem install openssl -- --with-openssl-dir=/opt/openssl
Alternatively, you can install the gem with
# Gemfile gem 'openssl' # or specify git master gem 'openssl', git: 'https://github.com/ruby/openssl'
bundle install, you should have the gem installed in your bundle.
Once installed, you can require "openssl" in your application.
NOTE: If you are using Ruby 2.3 (and not Bundler), you must activate the gem version of openssl, otherwise the default gem packaged with the Ruby installation will be used:
gem "openssl" require "openssl"
