Steve,

Thanks for the quick reply...
we are using the certificates for https communication so we wanted to
replace RSA with AES.
Is there any library that supports AES?

Thanks
Bharath

OpenSSL does support AES but you cannot replace RSA with AES in that way
using
OpenSSL or indeed any other crypto library. AES is a symmetric algorithm
while
RSA is an asymmetric (public key) crypto algorithm.
