The OpenSSL license is not an proprietary license, it's an very liberal
free software license without copyleft. Just not 100% GPL compatible due

Squid can lawfully be linked with OpenSSL when OpenSSL is provided as a
system library part of the operating system where Squid runs. But it's
not entirely trivial to define that boundary.
