;; This module defines some utility functions for STARTTLS profiles.

(defgroup starttls nil
  "Support for `Transport Layer Security' protocol."
  :version "21.1"
  :group 'mail)

(defcustom starttls-program "starttls"
  "The program to run in a subprocess to open an TLSv1 connection."
  :type 'string
  :group 'starttls)

(defcustom starttls-extra-args nil
  "Extra arguments to `starttls-program'."
  :type '(repeat string)
  :group 'starttls)

(defun starttls-negotiate (process)
  (signal-process (process-id process) 'SIGALRM))

(defun starttls-open-stream (name buffer host service)
  "Open a TLS connection for a service to a host.
Returns a subprocess-object to represent the connection.
Input and output work as for subprocesses; `delete-process' closes it.
NAME is name for process.  It is modified if necessary to make it unique.
BUFFER is the buffer (or `buffer-name') to associate with the process.
 Process output goes at end of that buffer, unless you specify
 an output stream or filter function to handle the output.
 BUFFER may be also nil, meaning that this process is not associated
 with any buffer
Third arg is name of the host to connect to, or its IP address.
Fourth arg SERVICE is name of the service desired, or an integer
specifying a port number to connect to."

			 name buffer starttls-program
			 host (format "%s" service)

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
