Francesco Sullo has created aSSL: Ajax Secure Service Layer an open source library built to substitute the need for SSL in Ajax applications.
First a random 128-bit key is negotiated with the server, then, once the connection is established, data is exchanged using BlockTEA. The most recent version of aSSL (v1.1) implements what Francesco calls Double Key Quadruple DES. Future developments will see aSSL move away from DES and towards AES encryption.
aSSL is composed from a file .js and a server component. Currently, the ASP and PHP components are ready. I’m developing Ruby and Java components and in the near future I will add components in all the principal web languages (Perl, Python, TKL, etc.).
- aSSL 1.1 (JS and ASP)
- aSSL 1.0 (JS, ASP and PHP)
- Examples: ASP, PHP
- Demo: using jQuery, or Prototype
