End of Life for OpenSSL Version 1.1.1 necessitates an Upgrade to OpenSSL 3.x

OpenSSL, a fundamental library for encrypting communication protocols using SSL/TLS, recently announced the end of support for version 1.1.1. This marks the end of the OpenSSL 1.x series.

Introduced in 2018, OpenSSL 1.1.1 was a long-term support (LTS) version with a full 5-year support lifespan. As per the previously announced plan, this support has now come to an end.

Users are now required to upgrade to OpenSSL 3.x, which offers two options:

1. OpenSSL 3.0 LTS, which will be supported until September 2026.
2. OpenSSL 3.1, which will receive support until March 2025.

TLDR: OpenSSL has discontinued support for version 1.1.1 after its 5-year lifespan. Users must upgrade to either OpenSSL 3.0 LTS or OpenSSL 3.1 for continued support.
