      I am in the process of using the openssl suite for many things
including encrypting private information. There is a heap of information on
the internet suggesting using the openssl client for these sort of
purposes. However in a very few places there are also statements that the
client is only for testing the library and shouldn't be used in anger, that
it isn't secure or that only certain protocols are correctly implemented.
There isn't a statement in the documentation about this and we all know the
religiosity of some statements on the internet.

I am using aes-256-cbc to encrypt streamed data (a backup).

I am running OpenSSL 1.1.0g 2 Nov 2017

Any comments would be helpful.

many thanks in advance
