    First, download the OpenSSL 0.9.6C from the below link:

    OpenSSL

    NOTE: I used OpenSSL 0.9.6C and it worked for me. If you want the latest version, then go to the OpenSSL: Source, Tarballs link and download it.

    After downloading, uncompress it to the Desktop and rename the folder as “openssl”. Then, open the Terminal window from /Applications/Utilities/ and run the below commands:

    cd /users/<your_user_name>/desktop/

    sudo mv oppenssh /usr/local/

    sudo cd /usr/local/openssl

    ./config

    make

    make install


    Now, OpenSSL is on your system.

    Small Edit: the first command after unzipping should be

    sudo mv openssl /usr/local/

    cheers!
