Bekijk de volledige versie : What is nas and libcrypto.so

11-01-2005, 07:56

I am currently trying to build ipsec for the wl-500g. While customizing openssl I realized that there is already a libcrypt.so in the firmware. Unfortunately it is different from the one in openssl.

It seems that the only program using libcrypto.so is nas. Does anybody know the purpose of nas or nas4not which is a symbolic link to nas? It seems that there is no source code included for this program, so does anybody know where I can get the sources from to build an executable statically linked against libcrypt.so?

nas is a binary from broadcom, which provides WPA support, nas4not used for WDS. No sources available.
libcrypto is used by nas, and it's available as separate object files. There is no way to link them statically, at least I don't know anything capable of doing so.

I found another solution to my problem: using a hex editor I changed the name of libcrypto.so to libnas.so in the nas binary and renamed libcrypto.so to libnas.so. Now I can install openssl :)
