summary: Support for SSL
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: taxing: Needs external things we don't have (standards, users etc)
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.

There's been one request for SSL. (SSL/Telnet in particular; possibly also raw-SSL in order to talk directly to HTTPS?) Most of the SSL protocol looks reasonably sane, except for the certificates (ASN.1 and X509 and other buzzwords). If the certificate processing turns out to take too much code, SSL might not make it into the PuTTY core for size reasons - it would have to be compiled in specially, or perhaps shipped as a separate DLL.
