+ WARNING
+ -------
+
+ This version of OpenSSL is built in a way that supports operation in
+ the so called FIPS mode. Note though that the library as we build it
+ is not FIPS validated and the FIPS mode is present for testing purposes
+ only.
+ 
+ This version also contains a few differences from the upstream code
+ some of which are:
+   * The FIPS integrity verification check is implemented differently
+     from the upstream FIPS validated OpenSSL module. It verifies
+     HMAC-SHA256 checksum of the whole libcrypto shared library.
+   * The module respects the kernel FIPS flag /proc/sys/crypto/fips and
+     tries to initialize the FIPS mode if it is set to 1 aborting if the
+     FIPS mode could not be initialized. It is also possible to force the
+     OpenSSL library to FIPS mode especially for debugging purposes by
+     setting the environment variable OPENSSL_FORCE_FIPS_MODE.
+   * If the environment variable OPENSSL_NO_DEFAULT_ZLIB is set the module
+     will not automatically load the built in compression method ZLIB
+     when initialized. Applications can still explicitely ask for ZLIB
+     compression method.
+   * There is added a support for EAP-FAST through TLS extension. This code
+     is backported from OpenSSL upstream development branch.
