The first step you need to take is not to use Fedora's old, and the latest version is 20. Second, what have you done/tried so far?? You should just have to type in something like "yum install openssl". Did you try to look this up?

TB0ne beat me to it. in short you need to migrate off F17 to at least F19 and F20 would be even better. I do not know if fedup will take you all the way from F17 to F20 in a single jump. I know you can use fedup from F18 to F20 and going forward a 2 or 3 jump should work fine with fedup. should being the key word.

my only other question is why are you wanting to run openssl on your F17 box? are you planning on running a web server? if so dont bother with Fedora at all and instead install CentOS you will have much longer life support and better performance in the long run with considerably less headache.
