Porting wolfSSL into OpenSSH

Hi!  This is a short note to let you know that we have ported wolfSSL into the sshd sources.  This effort was done for a customer of the wolfSSL embedded SSL product.  This particular customer of ours was looking for a version of OpenSSH with a smaller footprint, TLS 1.2 and some specialized ciphers.  Alpha versions of the code base can be made available to select members of our user base in June 2012, with wider availability in beta form on the 4th of July.    

If you are interested in trying OpenSSH with wolfSSL, then please contact us at info@yassl.com.

New features coming to wolfSSL in May

We`ve added some new features to wolfSSL that will go into the general release this month.  The features are:

1.  Support for SHA-384
2.  Client ECC certificates
3.  Static ECDH
4.  GCM

With the addition of SHA-384 and GCM, wolfSSL will become NSA Suite B compliant.

If you need access to these features right away, contact us at info@yassl.com and we can possibly arrange for an early private code drop.

wolfSSL Supports SPDY

Hi yaSSL users!  See the following link for an explanation on SPDY:  https://readwrite.com/2012/04/19/what-web-users-need-to-know-ab/

SPDY is a new protocol for web use proposed by Google and supported by many of the large web companies.  It is based on HTTP, but it is faster and more suited to modern web usage.  

You will note that SPDY mandates SSL, which will provide everyone more security in their day to day web use.  We should also note that our friends at NGINX are supporting SPDY.

If you have comments or questions on running wolfSSL with SPDY, then please contact us at info@yassl.com.
