SECURITY-SSL(2) SECURITY-SSL(2) NAME ssl: connect, secret - interface to the Secure Sockets Layer SYNOPSIS include "sys.m"; include "security.m"; ssl := load SSL SSL->PATH; connect: fn(fd: ref Sys->FD): (string, ref Sys->Connection); secret: fn(c: ref Sys->Connection, secretin, secretout: array of byte): string; DESCRIPTION SSL provides an interface to the secure sockets layer device ssl(3). Connect allocates a new ssl(3) connection directory. It pushes file descriptor fd into the data file of that connec- tion, and if successful, returns a reference to a Connection adt describing the connection. The Connection adt has its members set as follows: dir names the resulting connection directory; cfd is open on the connection's control file; and dfd is open on the connection's data file, which is read and written to exchange data on the original fd using SSL. Secret writes secretin and secretout to c.dir/secretin and c.dir/secretout where n is obtained from the Connection adt c. The string returned describes errors encountered, if any; otherwise it is nil. SOURCE /appl/lib/ssl.b SEE ALSO security-auth(2), ssl(3) DIAGNOSTICS Connect returns a tuple containing a string and a Connection reference. On success the string is nil, and the connection reference is not nil; on error, the string contains a diag- nostic, and the connection reference is nil.
