As i understand it that is covered by the explicit [OpenSSL license
grant], that as far as I can tell doesn't have any further restrictions
of use of openssl.

1.3 " Use in OpenSSL" means using, making, copying, modifying, distribu
ting, having made, importing or having imported any program, software,
or computer system containing or based upon the OpenSSL toolkit, but
does not include any imp lementation of the Licensed Patents that is
unrelated to the OpcnSSL toolkit.

1.4 "Licensee" means the OpenSSL Software Foundation, at 1829 Mount
Ephraim Road, Adamstown , MD 21710, its affiliates, assignees. or
sllccessors in interest, or anyone using, making, copying, modifying, di
stributing, having made, importing, or having imported any program,
software, or computer system including or based upon the
OpenSSL toolkit, or their customers, suppliers, importers,
manufacturers, distributors, or Insurers.


2.1 Licensor hereby grants to Licensee a perpetual, worldwide,
non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable, no-charge,
royalty-free, irrevocable license to Use in OpenSSL any invention
claimed in the Licensed Patents.

[OpenSSL license grant]
