It looks like there is certainly interest in an up-to-date free SSL
implementation for eCos. Configurability, licensing and ease-of-update
are key factors here. It would be interesting to compare the sizes of
PolarSSL and OpenSSL when configured with the same feature set. OpenSSL
licensing is certainly more flexible than the open source PolarSSL
license for deployment in commercial embedded systems.

Mark, was there much effort involved in updating Andrew Lunn's original
port of OpenSSL v0.9.6b? The version numbering suggests no major changes.

Does anyone have up-to-date information (with reference) on the
restrictions for hosting this class of cryptographic source code on a
publically-accessible server located in the United States?

Is there any interest in using SSL with the lwIP TCP/IP stack? Perhaps
someone has already got this combination working?
