Amazon introduces alternate TLS implementation s2n


Amazon Web Services introduced s2n; an Open Source implementation of the TLS protocol.  s2n is a library that has been designed to be small, fast, with simplicity as a priority. s2n avoids implementing rarely used options and extensions, and today is just more than 6,000 lines of code. As a result of this, Amazon developers expected  that it is easier to review s2n; they have already completed three external security evaluations and penetration tests on s2n, a practice we will be continuing.
