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.
