How to install openssl 1.1.0 on centos 7

Hi,

Default version of openssl in centos 7 repository is quite old. You can check it as follows:
openssl version
OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013
or like this:
yum info openssl
Name        : openssl
Arch        : x86_64
Epoch       : 1
Version     : 1.0.1e
Release     : 60.el7_3.1

Even though it's not recommended to install packages outside of repo, sometimes it might be useful. Below I will show you how to install the latest version of openssl from sources.
