- Well, if you've made it to the goodbye movie and you've completed this course, congratulations! Bravo! That was not easy to do and I'm proud of you for getting all the way through it but you're not done. There's a lot more to this subject and I really want to be sure that you get out there and you read more on this. And to that end, I think I'd like to recommend a couple of books The first one is Network Security with OpenSSL, published by O'Reilly and authored by John Viega and Matt Messier and Pravir Chandra. The next book is called Beautiful Security, also by O'Reilly and this by Andy Oram and also John Viega.
If you are trying to run SSL on an Apple Server running Mavericks, there is a knowledge base article I really want you to go out and look at. It is PH15666 and that is at http://support.apple.com/kb/ and then that number. The last thing I'd like you to go and look at and this is something that I want you to bookmark and go back to frequently and that is the www.openssl.org/support/faq.html website.
There you have a wealth of information and frequently asked questions that they answer very clearly. Also, please go to the openssl.org main page to look at security updates and if you're compiling your own and downloading your own stuff, you got to stay up on your version numbers so please do that there. And just remember that this is an ongoing process and your learning will be continuing probably forever. once you get through this. Thanks for joining me. I really enjoyed teaching this course with you and I look forward to hopefully teaching you in a course some time real soon.
