The [wolfSSL embedded TLS library]( is a lightweight, portable, 
C-language-based SSL/TLS library targeted at IoT, embedded, and RTOS environments primarily because of its size, 
speed, and feature set. It works seamlessly in desktop, enterprise, and cloud environments as well. 
wolfSSL supports industry standards up to the current [TLS 1.3]( and DTLS 1.3, 
is up to 20 times smaller than OpenSSL, offers a simple API, an OpenSSL compatibility layer,
OCSP and CRL support, is backed by the robust [wolfCrypt cryptography library](, 
and much more.

The CMVP has issued FIPS 140-2 Certificates #3389 and #2425 for the wolfCrypt Module developed by wolfSSL Inc.  
For more information, see our [FIPS FAQ]( or contact

# Getting Started

Check out the Examples on the right pane of the [wolfssl component page](

Typically you need only 4 lines to run an example from scratch in the EDP-IDF environment:

. ~/esp/esp-idf/ create-project-from-example "gojimmypi/mywolfssl^5.7.0-ReleaseTest2"
cd wolfssl_benchmark -b 115200 flash monitor

or for VisualGDB:

. /mnt/c/SysGCC/esp32/esp-idf/v5.1/ create-project-from-example "gojimmypi/mywolfssl^5.7.0-ReleaseTest2"
cd wolfssl_benchmark -b 115200 flash monitor

### Espressif Component Notes

Here are some ESP Registry-specific details of the wolfssl component.

#### Component Name

The naming convention of the build-system name of a dependency installed by the component manager
is always `namespace__component`. The namespace for wolfSSL is `wolfssl`. The build-system name
is thus `wolfssl__wolfssl`. We'll soon be publishing `wolfssl__wolfssh`, `wolfssl__wolfmqtt` and more.

A project `cmakelists.txt` doesn't need to mention it at all when using wolfSSL as a managed component.

#### Component Manager

To check which version of the [Component Manager]( 
is currently available, use the command:

python -m idf_component_manager -h

The Component Manager should have been installed during the [installation of the ESP-IDF]( 
If your version of ESP-IDF doesn't come with the IDF Component Manager, 
you can [install it](

python -m pip install --upgrade idf-component-manager

For further details on the Espressif Component Manager, see the [idf-component-manager repo](

# wolfSSL Embedded SSL/TLS Library

The [wolfSSL embedded SSL library]( 
(formerly CyaSSL) is a lightweight SSL/TLS library written in ANSI C and
targeted for embedded, RTOS, and resource-constrained environments - primarily
because of its small size, speed, and feature set.  It is commonly used in
standard operating environments as well because of its royalty-free pricing
and excellent cross platform support. wolfSSL supports industry standards up
to the current [TLS 1.3]( and DTLS 1.3, is up to
20 times smaller than OpenSSL, and offers progressive ciphers such as ChaCha20,
Curve25519, Blake2b and Post-Quantum TLS 1.3 groups. User benchmarking and
feedback reports dramatically better performance when using wolfSSL over

wolfSSL is powered by the wolfCrypt cryptography library. Two versions of
wolfCrypt have been FIPS 140-2 validated (Certificate #2425 and
certificate #3389). FIPS 140-3 validation is in progress. For additional
information, visit the [wolfCrypt FIPS FAQ](
or contact

## Why Choose wolfSSL?

There are many reasons to choose wolfSSL as your embedded, desktop, mobile, or
enterprise SSL/TLS solution. Some of the top reasons include size (typical
footprint sizes range from 20-100 kB), support for the newest standards
(SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, TLS 1.2, TLS 1.3, DTLS 1.0, DTLS 1.2, and DTLS 1.3),
current and progressive cipher support (including stream ciphers), multi-platform,
royalty free, and an OpenSSL compatibility API to ease porting into existing
applications which have previously used the OpenSSL package. For a complete
feature list, see [Chapter 4](
of the wolfSSL manual.

## Notes, Please Read

### Note 1
wolfSSL as of 3.6.6 no longer enables SSLv3 by default.  wolfSSL also no longer
supports static key cipher suites with PSK, RSA, or ECDH. This means if you
plan to use TLS cipher suites you must enable DH (DH is on by default), or
enable ECC (ECC is on by default), or you must enable static key cipher suites
with one or more of the following defines:

Though static key cipher suites are deprecated and will be removed from future
versions of TLS.  They also lower your security by removing PFS.

When compiling `ssl.c`, wolfSSL will now issue a compiler error if no cipher
suites are available. You can remove this error by defining
`WOLFSSL_ALLOW_NO_SUITES` in the event that you desire that, i.e., you're
not using TLS cipher suites.

### Note 2
wolfSSL takes a different approach to certificate verification than OpenSSL
does. The default policy for the client is to verify the server, this means
that if you don't load CAs to verify the server you'll get a connect error,
no signer error to confirm failure (-188).

If you want to mimic OpenSSL behavior of having `SSL_connect` succeed even if
verifying the server fails and reducing security you can do this by calling:

wolfSSL_CTX_set_verify(ctx, WOLFSSL_VERIFY_NONE, NULL);

before calling `wolfSSL_new();`. Though it's not recommended.

### Note 3
The enum values SHA, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512 are no longer available when
wolfSSL is built with `--enable-opensslextra` (`OPENSSL_EXTRA`) or with the
macro `NO_OLD_SHA_NAMES`. These names get mapped to the OpenSSL API for a
single call hash function. Instead the name `WC_SHA`, `WC_SHA256`, `WC_SHA384` and
`WC_SHA512` should be used for the enum name.

# wolfSSL Release 5.7.0 (Mar 20, 2024)

Release 5.7.0 has been developed according to wolfSSL's development and QA
process (see link below) and successfully passed the quality criteria.

NOTE: * --enable-heapmath is being deprecated and will be removed by end of 2024

NOTE: In future releases, --enable-des3 (which is disabled by default) will be insufficient in itself to enable DES3 in TLS cipher suites. A new option, --enable-des3-tls-suites, will need to be supplied in addition.  This option should only be used in backward compatibility scenarios, as it is inherently insecure.

NOTE: This release switches the default ASN.1 parser to the new ASN template code. If the original ASN.1 code is preferred define `WOLFSSL_ASN_ORIGINAL` to use it. See PR #7199.

## Vulnerabilities
* [High] CVE-2024-0901 Potential denial of service and out of bounds read. Affects TLS 1.3 on the server side when accepting a connection from a malicious TLS 1.3 client. If using TLS 1.3 on the server side it is recommended to update the version of wolfSSL used. Fixed in this GitHub pull request

* [Med] CVE-2024-1545 Fault Injection vulnerability in RsaPrivateDecryption function that potentially allows an attacker that has access to the same system with a victims process to perform a Rowhammer fault injection. Thanks to Junkai Liang, Zhi Zhang, Xin Zhang, Qingni Shen for the report (Peking University, The University of Western Australia)."
Fixed in this GitHub pull request

* [Med] Fault injection attack with EdDSA signature operations. This affects ed25519 sign operations where the system could be susceptible to Rowhammer attacks. Thanks to Junkai Liang, Zhi Zhang, Xin Zhang, Qingni Shen for the report (Peking University, The University of Western Australia).
Fixed in this GitHub pull request

## New Feature Additions

* Added --enable-experimental configure flag to gate out features that are currently experimental. Now liboqs, kyber, lms, xmss, and dual-alg-certs require the --enable-experimental flag.

* Experimental framework for using wolfSSL’s XMSS implementation (PR 7161)
* Experimental framework for using wolfSSL’s LMS implementation (PR 7283)
* Experimental wolfSSL Kyber implementation and assembly optimizations, enabled with --enable-experimental --enable-kyber (PR 7318)

* CryptoCb support for PQC algorithms (PR 7110)

* The Linux kernel module now supports registration of AES-GCM, AES-XTS, AES-CBC, and AES-CFB with the kernel cryptosystem through the new --enable-linuxkm-lkcapi-register option, enabling automatic use of wolfCrypt implementations by the dm-crypt/luks and ESP subsystems.  In particular, wolfCrypt AES-XTS with –enable-aesni is faster than the native kernel implementation.
* CryptoCb hook to one-shot CMAC functions (PR 7059)
* BER content streaming support for PKCS7_VerifySignedData and sign/encrypt operations (PR 6961 & 7184)
