SSL encryption wrapper for standard network daemons
The stunnel program is designed to work as SSL encryption wrapper between remote client and local inetd-startable or remote server. The concept is that having non-SSL aware dae- mons running on your system you can easily setup them to communicate with clients over secure SSL channel.
stunnel can be used to add SSL functionality to commonly used inetd daemons like POP-2, POP-3 and IMAP servers without any changes in the programs’ code.
