You are given us a lesson of "Do-it"
> A while back I started an implementation of TLS 1.2.  Rob Withers  
> joined the effort a few weeks ago and is has made terrific  
> progress.  He reorganized everything, added a proper protocol  
> stack, and now has the certificates working.
> Our version now works with SSL3.0 and TLS 1.1, and DH or RSA using  
> x509v3 Certificates.  There are still a number of things that need  
> to be done but we can now use squeak to connect as an SSL server  
> and/or client.  See the examples in the workspace that opens when  
> you load the code.  You will find our implementation at  
> www.squeaksource.com/Cryptography.  There are two Monticello  
> Configuration files available to make loading easier.  Load  
> Cryptography-Configuration.mcm, and then Crypt-Xtra-Config.mcm.
> We could use some help with testing, code review, documentation or  
> any other help you would like to offer.
> There is also support for MS CryptoAPI and CertificateStores for  
> Microsoft in the MSCert package.  In the future I will be working  
> on integrating this functionality.  I will also be adding support  
> for KomHttp which is mostly completed but needs to be updated to  
> support Rob’s new version.
> We hope you find this useful and will keep us updated on your use  
> and issues with our implementation.  If you have any questions  
> please let us know.  Also again we would like to invite anyone with  
> interest or experience with cryptography to join our Cryptography  
> Team at http://lists.squeakfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/ 
> cryptography .
