go-libp2p's secio encrypted transport

Package go-libp2p-secio is a libp2p stream security transport. Connections wrapped by secio use secure sessions provided by this package to encrypt all traffic. A TLS-like handshake is used to setup the communication channel.


go-libp2p-secio is a standard Go module which can be installed with:

go get github.com/libp2p/go-libp2p-secio

Note that go-libp2p-secio is packaged with Gx, so it is recommended to use Gx to install and use it (see the Usage section).


This module is packaged with Gx. In order to use it in your own project it is recommended that you:
