[openssl-users] updating openssl on MacOS

Macports team is working on upgrading OpenSSL to 1.1.1. It takes time because they plan to move all the ports that depend on OpenSSL to that level. I assume that once that is done, 1.0.2 won't be supported/available on Macports anymore.

Installation - as Dominyk said: "sudo port install openssl" (possibly with parameters, check for them via "port info openssl"), and Macports would do the right thing. ;-)

I'm not aware of any efforts by Macports to support 1.1.0.

    FWIW on macOS:
    If you use Homebrew and want/need OpenSSL 1.1.1 then `brew install
    openssl at 1.1`. If you want the 1.0.2x series `brew install openssl`
    currently is & will likely remain attached to 1.0.2x for the foreseeable.
    If you use MacPorts and want OpenSSL 1.0.2x then `sudo port install
    openssl`. As far as I'm aware MacPorts does not currently offer a port
    for either 1.1.0x or 1.1.1x.
    If you use Nix and want OpenSSL 1.1.1 then `nix-env -i openssl-1.1.1`
    (I'm unsure if this has made it into a stable release of Nix yet) and if
    you want OpenSSL 1.0.2x then `nix-env -i openssl-1.0.2p`. You can get
    nix to spit out a list of OpenSSL versions available via `nix-env -qa
    Hope this helps some. I'm not sure what the situation is with fink or
    pkgsrc, or any newer package managers for the platform I'm unaware of.
