Right. If I compile/link any crypto functionality into software I release,
then I'm "exporting" it. That's about the extent of my knowledge of this.
So, my question is: does Boost.ASIO actually contain encryption? Or does it
rely on OpenSSL for all its encryption? If it does depend on OpenSSL, how
can I determine whether any OpenSSL functionality has made it into the
final *.a or *.lib or *.dylib file?
And, can someone confirm Boost.ASIO is the only library I need to worry
My app does not actually use ASIO, so I do have the option of leaving
Boost.ASIO out of the package I intend to submit internally to my company
as a dependency, but I am trying to include as much of Boost as possible so
that down the road another team can use Boost without going through all
this trouble again.
