As stated in the previous recipe, it has been possible to build OpenVPN using either the OpenSSL cryptographic library or the PolarSSL library since version 2.3. In this recipe, we will show what some of the key differences between the two cryptographic libraries are.

For this recipe, the computer was running Fedora 22 Linux and OpenVPN 2.3.10, built both for OpenSSL and for PolarSSL.
[root@server]# openvpn --show-ciphers ...
