    7 TLS (aka SSL) Channel - can be layered on any bi-directional Tcl_Channel.
    8 
    9 Both client and server-side sockets are possible, and this code should work
   10 on any platform as it uses a generic mechanism for layering on SSL and Tcl.
   11 
   12 Full filevent sematics should also be intact - see tests directory for
   13 blocking and non-blocking examples.

   15 The current release is TLS 1.6, with binaries built against OpenSSL 0.9.8g.
   16 For best security and function, always compile from source with the latest
   17 official release of OpenSSL (http://www.openssl.org/).
   18 
   19 TLS requires Tcl 8.2.0+, with 8.3.2+ preferred.  The stacked channel
   20 implementation in Tcl was originally introduced in 8.2.0 (previously the
   21 Trf patch) and rewritten for 8.3.2+ due to inherent limitations in the
   22 earlier implementation.  TLS should compile with any stubs-capable Tcl
   23 interpreter, but will require 8.2+ when loaded.  There are known
   24 limitations in the 8.2.0-8.3.1 stacked channel implementation, so it is
   25 encouraged that people use TLS with an 8.3.2+ Tcl interpreter.  These
   26 modifications are by Jeff Hobbs.
