While investigating if and how OpenSSL in several versions could be
made to support authenticated encryption in CMS , I noticed that,
e.g., AES in CCM and GCM modes disappeared completely in newer versions
from the command line tools.
The respective algorithms, such as EVP_aes_256_gcm() , appear to be available
in both versions' libraries, though.
Would someone perhaps involved in the release process be able to explain
the reasoning behind dropping the authenticated encryption modes from the
command line tools? Are there plans to extend OpenSSL's current support
for CMS  to newer CMS versions? Or is there even a connection between
the two, preventing the latter?
