===============
SSL support for RPC dropped
----------------------------
SSL support for RPC, previously enabled by the option `rpcssl` has been dropped
from both the client and the server. This was done in preparation for removing
the dependency on OpenSSL for the daemon completely.
Trying to use `rpcssl` will result in an error:
Error: SSL mode for RPC (-rpcssl) is no longer supported.
If you are one of the few people that relies on this feature, a flexible
migration path is to use `stunnel`. This is an utility that can tunnel
arbitrary TCP connections inside SSL. On e.g. Ubuntu it can be installed with:
sudo apt-get install stunnel4
Then, to tunnel a SSL connection on 28332 to a RPC server bound on localhost on port 18332 do:
stunnel -d 28332 -r 127.0.0.1:18332 -p stunnel.pem -P ''
It can also be set up system-wide in inetd style.
Random-cookie RPC authentication
