[DotGNU]Encryption protocols

Hi folks,

I promised on IRC yesterday to look into openssl and which parts of it are
useful to DotGNU. A quick look revealed that 2 protocols might be very useful:
RSA and blowfish. RSA is good for the authentication (since it uses public and
private keys) and blowfish is good for the encryption of communication.

It would work like this: you authenticate with the slow RSA protocol, at the end
of the authentication you get an blowfish key and that's used for encryption of
the communication of this session (since blowfish is a lot faster than RSA the
change is worthwhile).



PS: Interesting in this context is this article: .
