Read wikipedia :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenSSL

The OpenSSL project was founded in 1998 to invent a free set of encryption tools for the code used on the Internet.
As of 2014 two thirds of all webservers use it.[citation needed] The OpenSSL project management team consists of 4 Europeans.[citation needed]
The entire group consists of 11 members, of which 10 are volunteers, with only one full-time employee, Stephen Henson, the lead developer.[citation needed]
The project has a budget of less than $1 million a year and relies in part on donations.
Steve Marquess, a former military consultant in Maryland started the foundation for donations and consultancy contracts
and garnered sponsorship from the United States Department of Homeland Security and the United States Department of Defense.[2]
