s2n

   
Securitys2n is a C99 implementation of the TLS/SSL protocols that is designed to be simple, small, fast, and with security as a priority. It is released and licensed under the Apache Software License 2.0.

Amazon Web Services has released a new, open source library that implements TLS encryption the standard behind the secure HTTPS web protocol using far less code than the prevailing OpenSSL library.

The s2n library isn't a replacement for OpenSSL, though. It only implements the TLS protocol and not the algorithms that handle the actual encryption. Schmidt said Amazon will continue to support the development of the OpenSSL cryptography library via the Linux Foundation's Core Infrastructure Initiative.
