Due to a bug in the past [1], wpa_supplicant is build against OpenSSL 1.0. This has been fixed by upstream in the meantime [2]. There have been also a series of other commits in regards to OpenSSL 1.1.0, so we should build wpa_supplicant against the latest version of OpenSSL to minimize the number of packages still requiring the old version. There have been similar bugs [3] to make the switch in the past, which were closed, but I think it might be time to re-visit this. Also Fedora has switched a while ago, and it seems to work fine for them.


Additional info:
* package version(s): 1:2.6-12
