A.1.31 The SSL Directory

Secure Sockets Layer; includes an example certification one can use test an SSL (secure) database connection.

This isn't a code directory. It contains a short note from Tonu Samuel (the NOTES file) and seven *.pem files. PEM stands for "Privacy Enhanced Mail" and is an Internet standard for adding security to electronic mail. Finally, there are two short scripts for running clients and servers over SSL connections.
