AmiSSL, please port it to AROS
« on: April 12, 2019, 09:01:37 AM »
Hello. I remember having brought this topic to your attention a couple of year ago on the 'old' aros-exec, unluckily it's gone so I can't recover how it finished. IIRC, one of the main opposition was the fact that we could embed SSL/TSL encryption directly in applications using a static library while applications actually using the shared AmiSSL library were not so many.
Well, just a week ago Andreas Falkenhahn released hURL for Hollywood and, as you can see, there are version for any damn operating system out there (from ancient OS3 to Android, including Windows, MacOS, Linux and ALL other Amiganoid systems) EXCEPT AROS. And, guess what? The motivation is only one: we miss AmiSSL. I think hURL would be good to have, since it helps making networking applications with Hollywood, apps that won't be available on AROS since we miss the crucial hwp used by them.

Moreover, there are many Amiga applications using AmiSSL, like Netsurf, Charon, the latest versions of the cloud drivers (which are not available to AROS), YAM, SimpleMail and others. Pleaser consider this a plea: bring AmiSSL to AROS, if you can.

Nick doesnt want amissl because he considers the way this is maintained too orthodox and not efficient so to ssy, if i get him right..
We already have current openssl in contribs. All we probably need is to make a shared lib with amissl compatible interface instead of static one.

the problem with what I understand is that amissl is the standard for amiga software

because hollywood coders complain afair, i understand. whether its standard or not we wont gather developers if we dont encourage less invasive approach..

I understand your point of view, but maybe you could integrate applications that use amissl and those that don't use it

im not sure if i understand. the logical step, perhaps, as i wrote, would be to write an interface for openssl or rather adopt amissl interface as much as it is possible. someone needs to do that, simply.
