Since version 3.6.6, wolfSSL has had continually improving support for stunnel, a lightweight TLS proxy, designed to add SSL/TLS encryption to unsecured applications without changes to the program`s source code. Licensed under GNU GPLv2 and with an alternative commercial option, stunnel can be utilized to secure a host of different applications, including: mail exchange (SMTP, IMAP, POP3), web hosting (HTTP), remote shell, and virtually any other unprotected protocol desired.
Porting stunnel to use wolfSSL`s embedded SSL/TLS library means taking advantage of wolfSSL`s minimal footprint and high speed crypto implementation to increase performance and decrease required resources when compared to the previous SSL library. Not only that, but using wolfSSL with stunnel combines these benefits with the peace of mind that your application is secured by a progressive, transparent and stable SSL/TLS library, known for its quality, integrity and efficiency.
To build wolfSSL for use with stunnel, simply configure wolfSSL with:
$ ./configure --enable-stunnel
from wolfSSL`s main directory, then make and make install.
