Flash Media Server and its components use OpenSSL libraries for various functions internally. Until now, all the previous Flash Media Server releases have statically linked to the OpenSSL libraries. This static linking made it impossible for users to manually upgrade the OpenSSL libraries.
With the latest Flash Media Server (versions 3.5.6 or later and 4.0.2 or later), you can compile the OpenSSL libraries and apply them to Flash Media Server. Flash Media Server 3.5.6 and 4.0.2 added OpenSSL version1.0.0c as a dynamic or shared library. This TechNote explains how to compile the OpenSSL libraries and integrate them in Flash Media Server.
