The OpenSSL double license is available at: https://www.openssl.org/source/license.txt
I am not a lawyer and I am not sure whether I am more confused by the license agreement than I am scared of it.
I am working on a game that will encrypt and decrypt its local save files using OpenSSL. That's it.
The first license states:
- "Redistributions of any form whatsoever must retain the following acknowledgment: "This product includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project for use in the OpenSSL Toolkit (http://www.openssl.org/)"
Does that mean I need to add some credits screen to my game, which shows the following acknowledgement?
The second license further states that:
If this package is used in a product, Eric Young should be given attribution as the author of the parts of the library used. This can be in the form of a textual message at program startup or in documentation (online or textual) provided with the package.
In order to comply with the double license, do I need to give two acknowledgements in my app to OpenSSL and to Eric Young? Is there something else that I am missing and/or am I understanding the license correctly if I want to use OpenSSL in my game?
