gnutls (GNU TLS library)
This is a TLS (Transport Layer Security) 1.0 and SSL (Secure Sockets
Layer) 3.0 implementation. In brief, GnuTLS can be described as a
library which offers an API to access secure communication protocols.
These protocols provide privacy over insecure lines, and were designed
to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery.
