It looks to me as it is also available open source, although I don't think many projects would use it except on an Apple OS.

There's libsecurity (and component libraries) and there's also the Security framework (aka com.apple.security). For the Security framework, version numbers are definitely available see for example http://www.opensource.apple.com/source/Security/Security-55148.1/Info-Security.plist
