There's a way to do SSL where you do the initial handshake and then
enable/disable encryption of the connection at will. This is possible
with OpenSSL but is it possible with Erlang's implementation?
I need this for a poker protocol. The folks who built it in C++
apparently realized that going SSL all the way generated too much
traffic for them so they handshake and then enable SSL for their most
From my reading into SSL I think the server sends the public key,
the client uses that to encrypt its block/session key (asymetric
encryption) and once the server decodes the session key using its
private key the session key is used from then on.
Maybe I could just implement the handshake in Erlang with my modified
crypto driver and skip the SSL module. What do you recon?
