Minimal, simple API basically means I wouldn't want to see anything like the mess of OpenSSL's "BIO" layer. If I didn't care for making users of the library happy, I would say it should just have one function, an open function, that would hand over the socket to the library and give you a new socket (from socketpair) to use in its place as an unencrypted socket. But then everybody would whine about threads. So I think there need to be some additional interfaces, but not more than a few. > Could you comment on what parts of it are unsuitable for your intended > purposes? I'm curious what would need to be changed or replaced. So far, based on what I've seen/read, I find it rather suitable. Lots of people find the license (GPL) unacceptable however. Rich
