Hi Steve,

Thanks a lot for the response. We are not using SSL 3.0. It is completely
disabled in the stack. This issue is happening in TLS 1.0/ TLS 1.2 both.
We are using OpenSSL 1.0.1c. I did not try using s_client.

However I found the issue is fixed with the latest release of OpenSSL
1.0.2d. API's changed are EVP_MD_flags from evp_lib.c
and pkey_fips_check_ctx from rsa_pmeth.c
