There is a pre-built OpenSSL library (libssl.a and libcrypto.a) available in my system forC++ application. I don't have any idea about the version of the OpenSSL library.

Can I get the version number from these pre-built libraries?

The version can be easily known in Linux, just read the below document:


You just have to use the functions listed down below:



The strings are mentioned in that document I gave the link above :

OpenSSL 0.9.5a 1 Apr 2000

OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013

Therefore, you can find this from the binary library using strings and grep:

strings | grep "^OpenSSL \S\+ [0-9]\+ \S\+ [0-9]\+"
