TLS-PSK still under development?

Asked by Jan Diekhoff on 2013-09-30


im looking for PSK cipher PSK-AES256-CBC-SHA. I noticed that André Cruz asked for it already. Sorry for asking the same question twice but I saw that you guys implemented something last year. Is the status still says under development?

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking.

It's true André Cruz asked for it and started working on the implementation. His work is available at <lp:~andrefcruz/pyopenssl/pyopenssl>.

After he proposed the change, I reviewed his branch and wrote up my comments on the merge proposal. These comments are available at <>.

André responded and then I ran out of time (and then forgot about the merge proposal entirely).

If "under development" means "someone is working on it" then it doesn't look like it is under development to me.

If "under development" means "incomplete and not yet part of pyOpenSSL trunk (which is what defines the next release of pyOpenSSL)" then I'd say it's still under development.

If you'd like this functionality to be included in the next release of pyOpenSSL then the best thing to do is to look at the branch, look at the comments on the merge proposal, and address the remaining work to be done. If it looks like there is no remaining work to do, then you can leave a comment to that effect on the merge proposal (which will remind me that it exists and suggest that it might not take very much time to get the feature into trunk).

Thanks for your interest in pyOpenSSL. Sorry I don't have an easier answer for you.,
