Legacy Windows and SSL
======================

Some of the project configurations allow the use of WinSSL (specifically
Schannel from Windows SSPI), the native SSL library in Windows. However,
WinSSL in Windows <= XP is unable to connect to servers that no longer
support the legacy handshakes and algorithms used by those versions. If
you will be using curl in one of those earlier versions of Windows you
should choose another SSL backend such as OpenSSL.
