SSL on an Embedded System
This project involved converting an existing TCP/IP based communications protocol to use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) on an Intel 386ex. An existing SSL 'C' library was ported to the 386ex and the software for the communications threads was re-designed and modifed to use SSL connections.
My work on this project also involved designing the scheme for loading and storing the private keys and certificates (public keys) for use with SSL.
This project improved the communications security of the product to allow a bank to use the device to monitor branches over a standard WAN.
