    Does HEAT Service Management require OpenSSL, why does it get installed?


    Resolution

    Java is not required nor installed with HEATSM core application, however, the Discovery Web Server module includes a version of OpenSSL 1.0.1e Light for purposes of generating certificates for the MDI solution.  Development has confirmed that the OpenSSL 1.0.1e Light installation can safely be removed from the Windows Control Panel > Programs and Features with no impact to functionality as long as MDI is not in use or already has it's certificates created.  Development also has plans to remove this form the Discovery Web Server module in a future release (see RM253883).
