GnuTLS README -- Important introductory notes. Copyright (C) 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 Free Software Foundation, Inc. See the end for copying conditions. GnuTLS implements the TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security aka Secure Sockets Layer) protocol. GnuTLS is a GNU project. More up to date information can be found at <http://www.gnu.org/software/gnutls/> and <http://www.gnutls.org/>. See the documentation in doc/ and examples in doc/examples/. COMPILATION ISSUES ------------------ The library needs libgcrypt. You can find libgcrypt at <ftp://ftp.gnupg.org/pub/gcrypt/libgcrypt/>. Note that by compiling libgcrypt with CPU optimizations gnutls' speed will increase. In case you are compiling for embedded systems you should check the configure options (that is run: 'configure --help'), and disable unneeded features of gnutls. LICENSE ISSUES -------------- Since the 0.4.2 version the gnutls library is covered under the GNU Lesser GPL. Previously released versions were licensed under the GNU GPL. We changed the license for most of GnuTLS because other free libraries already exist that do the same jobs and have lax licenses. We want GnuTLS to be usable in all the same places as those other libraries. We kept some parts of GnuTLS under the GPL because they are unique, and with the GPL they provide free software projects (which deserve our help) an advantage over non-free projects (which do not deserve our help, since they refuse to share with us). For more explanation, see http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html. The GNU Lesser GPL license applies to the main gnutls library, while the gnutls-extra library is under the GPL. The gnutls-extra library contains the code for "GnuTLS Inner Application" support and the OpenSSL compatibility layer. The gnutls library is located in the lib/ directory, while the gnutls-extra library is at libextra/. BUGS ---- Currently GnuTLS needs testing. By notifying the developers about a possible bug you may help a lot, since testing is really important and expensive. If you think you found a bug, report it to firstname.lastname@example.org together with the needed information, in order for developers to reproduce it. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Copying and distribution of this file, with or without modification, are permitted in any medium without royalty provided the copyright notice and this notice are preserved.
