#2 Do we need to support SSL?

SungHun Kim

I'd like to hear about your opinion about SSL.

Do you guys think we should support SSL or not?

Any idea about SSL would be welcome.

    I think making stable davfs version is more important then
    adding SSL module. so, how about adding and supporting SSL
    module after finished that.

    I've been thinking about how great it would be to have a
    WebDAV-based filesystem for some time, as it can be routed
    directly through every firewall in existence (sometimes a
    good thing! ;-)

    Having SSL support would not only make it useful - it
    would also be (more) secure. There aren't that many
    network filesystems that provide full data encryption
    (tcpfs and Samba-SSL are the only ones I can think of).

    SSL + firewall transparency could make davfs extremely
    useful in cross-company/campus partnerships...

    yes, definately. My silly school only enables ssl'd dav due
    to them being crazy about privacy etc. Only IE supports
    ssl'd webdav and it would be real handy if davfs could to.

    IMO, direct SSL support is important, but getting a stable
    davfs is more important. Meanwhile, it's easy to use
    stunnel to forward http requests to https...
