I just got my first segfault for the night working with SSL in jabber. I have mixed feelings right now. We decided to scale back the initial use of SSL. We'll support client<->server SSL right now but not server<->server. This is mostly due to the fact that server<->server is completely succeptable to a man in the middle replay attack, but who isn't eh? After battling my frustration with API documentation and samples (or lack thereof) for OpenSSL I finally got jabber to speak SSL. Now I'm just hooking it back into the system. Quite fun, and should be done in 30 minutes or so. Then I'll add in the digest authentication, and voila more security for jabber =)
