20.5 Explictly attaching SSL

You can attach SSL to an existing socket-stream by calling attach-ssl on the stream. attach-ssl ensures the OPENSSL library is loaded and seeds the Pseudo Random Number Generator (PRNG). The SOCKET-STREAM-SSL keyword arguments are processed by attach-ssl as described in Socket Stream SSL keyword arguments.

Detach SSL from a socket-stream and shut down the SSL with detach-ssl .

For full descriptions of attach-ssl and detach-ssl see the entries in the COMM chapter of the LispWorks Reference Manual .
