[swift-server-dev] Next Server Security API Group Meeting

a major thing the proposal is missing is a strong requirement for non blocking I/O (for the server side effort). That should be builtin from the start.

This seems possible with OpenSSL, but AFAIK not with CommonCrypto. Which I don’t think is a big deal, because NIO could probably be emulated using threads on macOS. The latter is a dev platform anyways and it should be fine if it doesn’t scale that well ...

Summary: Please structure the API so that it works with NIO from the start. Designing something which requires a thread for each SSL connection is hopefully a no-go :->
