libwebsockets with wolfSSL

We have had a few inquiries about using the wolfSSL embedded SSL/TLS library with secure web sockets lately, and wanted to inform our community that the libwebsockets team has successfully tested with wolfSSL through use of wolfSSL's OpenSSL compatibility layer. The wolfSSL compatibility layer allows for drop-in replacement of OpenSSL resulting in not only a much smaller footprint but very competitive speeds when using the Single Precision Math and/or other optimizations supported by wolfSSL (contact for more info on Single Precision and other cryptographic optimizations). The libwebsockets team has posted a basic guide for getting started with wolfSSL at the following link:
