TLS (aka SSL) Channel - can be layered on any bi-directional
Tcl_Channel (Note: Requires Trf Core Patch)
Both client and server-side sockets are possible, and this code
should work on any platform as it uses a generic mechanism for
layering on SSL and Tcl.
Full filevent sematics should also be intact - see tests directory for
blocking and non-blocking examples.
This was built (almost) from scratch based upon observation of OpenSSL 0.9.2B
Addition credit is due for Andreas Kupries ([email protected]), for
providing the Tcl_ReplaceChannel mechanism and working closely with me
to enhance it to support full fileevent semantics.
Also work done by the follow people provided the impetus to do this "right":-
tclSSL (Colin McCormack, Shared Technology)
SSLtcl (Peter Antman)
This code is licensed until the same terms as the Tcl Core.
I would also like to acknowledge the input of Marshall Rose, who convinced
me that people need to be able to switch-to-encrypted mode part way
through a conversation.
Also I would like to acknowledge the kind support of Novadigm Inc, my
current employer, which made this possible.
