40 and 128 bit SSL Security Module
A community release, part of the WebsterXL project
We are pleased to announce that you can now download the SecureSockets module,
which provides support for SSL 2 and SSL 3 (40 and 128 bit) as well as TSL
security. It is implemented at the socket level, with a public programmer's
guide, with the express purpose of providing security for RISC OS. No longer
can it be said that 'you can't do secure stuff with RISC OS'!
Of course we would remind you that this module was funded through WebsterXL,
our browser for RISC OS. We won't dwell on it, but the only way we can
provide this module for free download, is if WXL sales continue. 'Nuff said.
If you find this module useful, you may like to make a donation of,
say, £10 to a charity of your choice. You might even like to let
us know if you do so.
Restrictions on Download
Please read the legal clauses which follow in detail. Due to the legal
issues surrounding the release of security software, we have to follow the
guidelines laid down by the UK Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). By
downloading the software, you accept the agreement.
It is covered by Export Control's Open General Export Licence (OGEL) for
Consumer Cryptographic Goods.
We appologise if the legal agreement seems a bit daunting, but we're dealing
with government regulations here, so we have to be extra careful!
This module is the result of work by many people. Obviously the module is
(c) R-Comp, 2000, but we would especially like to thank David Gamble for his input
into this project.
The product includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project
for use in the OpenSSL Toolkit. (http://www.openssl.org/)
This product includes cryptographic software written by
Eric Young. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The encryption technology is quite performance (and memory) intensive
and as such will only be loaded on RiscPC or A7000/RiscStation/Mico
class machines. It does not work with Termite, due to technical
problems imposed by that software.
