In Topic: Implement server - choice of platform and authentication?

10 June 2011 - 12:54 AM

Platform: Linux is prefered. Most of people running on Linux. Windows Server 2008 license price is around 800usd so Linux platform can help somebody to save some money.
However there is a luck of good IDEs for Linux ( as for me ) so I would like to start on Windows and then port the things to Linux after have server working.

Lenguage: C++

Authtification: it depends on your product, under what kind of license are you going to disrtribute etc. There is OpenSSL lib - but again it makes you GPL. If you are willing to ellaborate and be independent (which is important) you can implement some key exchange protocol , hook encription and signatures.

In Topic: Anyone good with encryption algorithms?

NOTE: I do not want to write it for the binary level yet. also, it is opensourced and licenced under the gnu gpl v3

GPL componets must your product/project to be distributed under GPL as well. So if you are doing something commercial - look in some cyphers that are under MIT or BSD license.
Some cyphers are in 'public domain' and do not obligate you be GPL. Proabably you can take a look at blowfish.
