Default Bug#636072: ITP: stud -- scalable TLS unwrapping daemon

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Vincent Bernat <bernat@debian.org>

* Package name : stud
Version : 0.1
Upstream Author : Bump server team <http://bu.mp>

Programming Lang: C
Description : scalable TLS unwrapping daemon

stud is a network proxy that terminates TLS/SSL connections and
forwards the unencrypted traffic to some backend. It is designed to
handle tens of thousands of connections efficiently on multicore
machines.

stud has very few features. It is designed to be paired with an
intelligent backend like haproxy or nginx. It maintains a strict 1:1
connection pattern with this backend handler so that the backend can
dictate throttling behavior, maxmium connection behavior, availability
of service, etc.

You should include some text to differentiate this from stunnel4. From
the ITP, I cannot figure out why I would want this instead, or indeed,
why Debian should ship both.

OoO En cette soirée bien amorcée du samedi 30 juillet 2011, vers 22:42,

The main difference is that stud "handles tens of thousands of
connections efficiently on multicore machines". stunnel is not able to
get similar performance due to its threaded model. Moreover, stud is
really small (ten times smaller than stunnel) which may be important
From a security point of view.

I hope to backup those claims with some figures soon.
