I am not aware of any standard C++ wrappers for openSSL. In any case,
openSSl is an extensive library so even if you start out to write your
own wrappers, you will have to provide only a subset of the
functionality relevant to your work in the form of the class library.

You can get hold of the O'Reilly book "Secure Programming Cookbook for
C and C++" by John Viega, etc. That's a very good introduction to PKI
and stuff and uses SSL for all of its examples. Good book to read.

Cheers,
