  • SSL over IRC

    From Gandolf@VERT to DOVE-Net.General on Sat May 23 20:30:39 2015
    ALCON;

    I've taking a look at the following document http://www.synchro.net/docs/ircd.txt
    and I couldn't find my answer, so I'm asking here.

    Does the Synchronet IRC server support SSL over IRC?

    Thank you in advance.

    I don't believe it currently does, but it would be fairly simple to add. What's not clear is why it would be wanted for IRC.

    Not in v3.16. SSL/TLS support for services will be in a forthcoming version.

    The question of why ---
    Because it can be done.

    That's great news! Even though the information going through my BBS
    isn't particularly sensitive, since it's on my home network I'd like
    to have anything going in and out encrypted.

    Sure, but the reason needs to be compelling enough for someone to actually *do*
    it.
