Time to compare and discuss :)

> Dear Aaron Kaplan,
> Today we're releasing the second edition of OpenSSL Cookbook, our free
> OpenSSL book. This edition is a major update, with improvements to the
> existing text as well as new content. This new edition has about 95
> pages, which is an increase of about 35 pages comparing to the previous
> release.
> Get it here: https://www.feistyduck.com/books/openssl-cookbook/
> Here's a brief overview of what's new:
> - New chapter "Testing with OpenSSL", which focuses on secure server
> assessment.
> - New section "Recommended Configuration", which contains a list of
> recommended cipher suites. I now prefer to configure OpenSSL by
> explicitly listing all the suites I wish to enable.
> - New section "Creating a Private Certification Authority", which
> contains a step-by-step guide to creating and deploying a private CA.
> - Updated "SSL/TLS Deployment Best Practices" to v1.4. Important changes
> in this version include SHA1 deprecation and SSL v3 weaknesses (POODLE).
> Another important improvement is that I am switching from updating
> OpenSSL Cookbook once in a while (the previous edition was released in
> October 2013) to making small changes as the need arises. There still
> might be further editions, but only when and if new content is added.
> OpenSSL Cookbook draws from the content written for my bigger work,
> Bulletproof SSL and TLS. If you're looking for a complete guide to the
> world of SSL/TLS and Internet PKI, give this bigger book a try.
> That said, the main goals of OpenSSL Cookbook are to be useful, short,
> and to contain documentation for everything you might want to do with
> OpenSSL as a user (i.e., no programming). If you're looking for
> something and you can't find it in this book, please get in touch to
> propose improvements.
> Thanks!
