DCMTK supports some of the DICOM security extensions and relies on the free OpenSSL toolkit for the underlying cryptographic routines and the TLS protocol implementation. The following archives contain executable binaries that have been compiled and linked with OpenSSL. Only the DCMTK tools that make use of OpenSSL are included in these archives - please also download the corresponding full binary package. Please note that the use of cryptographic algorithms is affected by legislation and patent issues in many countries - you have to make sure yourself that you are allowed to use these tools before downloading them. DCMTK is is written in a mixture of ANSI C and C++. It comes in complete source code and is made available as "open source" software.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
