What version of Go are you using (go version)?

go env Output
$ go env

What did you do?

I need to new a https server with encrypted private key file, but ListenAndServeTLS only support filepath parameter.

  1. execute openssl cmd to decrypted the private key file to []byte.
  2. use tls.X509KeyPair to generate certificate.
  3. tls.NewListener

With much work to do which same with the function ListenAndServeTLS(certFile, keyFile string), the only differnece is the parameter type.

What did you expect to see?

ListenAndServeTLS(certBytes, keyBytes []bytes)

What did you see instead?

net/http Server has a TLSConfig member for which you can specify Certificates or a GetCertificates funtion.
