Regarding "multi-megabyte binaries", OpenSSL for Amiga 68k
on Aminet requires 8mb RAM, ixemul-48.0,
WB 3.x, and relies on an additional random device handler.
There is also the AmiSSL library
which have known vulnerabilities and is kind of slow, at least when using it with iBrowse
. The source code (SAS/C) is available for the AmiSSL library I linked, so if someone feel like taking a look at that, go ahead. EDIT: Just noticed that Jens Maus has been active with recent commits
to the AmiSSL repository so perhaps a new release is on the way.
Personally I think a lightweight 'ssh' port is more interesting to implement.
