Default OpenSSL to get a security audit and two full-time developers

$5.4M plan to help open source funds OpenSSL, OpenSSH, and Network Time Protocol.

A Linux Foundation project inspired by the Heartbleed security flaw announced that it will fund a security audit for the OpenSSL code base and the salaries of two full-time developers.

The Linux Foundation said it isn't disclosing how much money is being given to each project. As for OpenSSH and Network Time Protocol, a foundation spokesperson said they will receive "support for developers as well as infrastructure support." OpenSSH, developed by the OpenBSD project, is an open source implementation of the Secure Shell protocol used for remote command-line login and other types of secure communication. OpenSSH is deployed on popular Linux distributions as well as Apple's OS X.
