OpenSSL 1.0.2 (LTS) has been end-of-life since 31 Dec 2019, and OpenSSL 1.1.0 since 11 Sep 2019, and now OpenSSL 1.1.1 (LTS) has also reached end-of-life (OpenSSL 1.1.1 End of Life - OpenSSL Blog).

Erlang OTP 24.3 (Erlang OTP 24.3 is released - Erlang/OTP) was released 10 Mar 2023 with the crypto app updated to allow being “compiled, linked, and used with OpenSSL 3.0 cryptlib”.

ConfD 8.0.x is the last branch of ConfD which is being released. There are no plans to release OpenSSL 3.0 support for ConfD.
