32 <para>
33 The <application>GnuTLS</application> package contains libraries and
34 userspace tools which provide a secure layer over a reliable transport
35 layer. Currently the <application>GnuTLS</application> library implements
36 the proposed standards by the IETF's TLS working group. Quoting from the
37 TLS protocol specification:

40 <para>
41 <quote>The TLS protocol provides communications privacy over the
42 Internet. The protocol allows client/server applications to communicate in
43 a way that is designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, or message
44 forgery.</quote>
45 </para>
46
47 <para>
48 <application>GnuTLS</application> provides support for TLS 1.2, TLS 1.1,
49 TLS 1.0, and SSL 3.0 protocols, TLS extensions, including server name and max
50 record size. Additionally, the library supports authentication using the
51 SRP protocol, X.509 certificates and OpenPGP keys, along with support for
52 the TLS Pre-Shared-Keys (PSK) extension, the Inner Application (TLS/IA)
53 extension and X.509 and OpenPGP certificate handling.
