Secure transport with AmiSSL

Posted by ALB42 on 2. Mai 2019One Comment

Currently FreePascal on Amiga systems cannot use SSL currently, at MUIMapparium I went around it by proxy it on my own server. The reason for this is that usually at AROS the coder use a static linked OpenSSL, which we cannot use directly in FreePascal. But there is also a normal Amiga-style Library for it called AmiSSL. I started to write a import unit for FreePascal and it works.

Download a page via HTTPS using AmiSSL with FreePascal

There is one tiny hick up, the Library is not available for AROS and also no other possibility on AROS to use SSL for other languages than C. And it seems the devs are not willing to change that, because …. reasons… or just don’t like it… or don’t like the maintainer of AmiSSL, who knows, maybe just “fuck you, who cares about other languages”, as usual.
