libsss or where to go from SST?

In the mean time, I’m slowly rewriting Bryan Ford’s SST (Structured Streams Transport) library, using modern C++ and boost.asio, in the hopes that it will be easier to port to Metta. I called it libsss (Structured Secure Streams).

As this work progresses I also plan to enter the description of this protocol into an RFC document, so there will be some reference point for alternative implementations. Current specification progress is available in libsss repo on github.

I’d like to take the chance to thank Aldrin D’Souza for his excellent C++ wrapper around openssl crypto functions. He kindly licensed it for free use under BSD License.

update: Oct 2014 repository moved.
