This article is from the Secure Sockets Layer Discussion List FAQ, by Shannon Appel SAppel@consensus.com with numerous contributions by others.
The SSL-Talk List was an email list intended for discussion of the
technical issues of implementing the SSL protocol. It ceased to exist
on November 15, 1998.
Past discussions included issues of software development,
cryptanalysis of the protocol and of its various implementations,
testing, interoperability, the applicability of SSL to additional
TCP-based applications, infrastructure growth questions, etc.
