interesting, have to check it out. assuming that’s this:

understood. the patches i’m working on should cover that- basically just sending the keys down to the various actors and applying them to the sockets leaving “how you exch” at the higher levels. it’s that last step about “is there also a way to enable TLS out-of-the-box” part. because i may do authorization a diff way (and it may be a bit more fluid)…

ty for this. helpful.. :)
