Hi Miguel,

That is most excellent news! A build time option would be great. Would you foresee this option being available in the 4.8, 4.10, or a later release? (Would be helpful to know for our planning purposes)

What we want to do is to allow the user to configure at build time whether to use BoringSSL that we maintain, or use a system installed version of OpenSSL, that way Mono does not have to ship with the crypto, and if you update your OpenSSL installation on the system, the updates will flow into Mono directly.

Congrats to the team on the new BoringSSL TLS backend!

Our team is attempting to get our appliance FIPS certified to be able to sell into the US government. In our case, we must use the pre-approved version of OpenSSL that’s installed on the box. My question is whether the plan is still to allow developers to provider their own TLS provider assemblies (as described in http://www.mono-project.com/docs/about-mono/releases/4.6.0/#potentially---tls<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mono-project.com%2Fdocs%2Fabout-mono%2Freleases%2F4.6.0%2F%23potentially---tls&data=01%7C01%7Cmiguel%40microsoft.com%7C4afd3edad29b4af4125408d3e9a852f8%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C1&sdata=NC4GxM8s%2F%2FD4TcSnq%2BcY%2Fa7pZDl0Ca993ovnImir9og%3D&reserved=0>)? I ask since reading the code in master seems to suggest this may no longer be the case.
