|Short description=Library implementing TLS 1.0 and SSL 3.0.
|Full description='''GnuTLS is a secure communications library implementing the SSL, TLS and DTLS protocols.'''
+
|Full description=GnuTLS is a secure communications library implementing the SSL, TLS and DTLS protocols and technologies around them. It provides a simple C language application programming interface (API) to access the secure communications protocols as well as APIs to parse and write X.509, PKCS #12, and other required structures.
  
It is provided in the form of a C library to support the protocols, as well as to parse and write X.5009, PKCS 12, OpenPGP and other required structures.
+
The project strives to provide a secure communications back-end, simple to use and integrated with the rest of the base Linux libraries. A back-end designed to work and be secure out of the box, keeping the TLS and PKI complexity outside the applications.

GnuTLS

https://www.gnu.org/software/gnutls/
Library implementing TLS 1.0 and SSL 3.0.

GnuTLS is a secure communications library implementing the SSL, TLS and DTLS protocols and technologies around them. It provides a simple C language application programming interface (API) to access the secure communications protocols as well as APIs to parse and write X.509, PKCS #12, and other required structures.

The project strives to provide a secure communications back-end, simple to use and integrated with the rest of the base Linux libraries. A back-end designed to work and be secure out of the box, keeping the TLS and PKI complexity outside the applications.
