Embodiment
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
Description
GnuTLS is a secure communications library implementing the TLS and DTLS protocols. It provides a simple C language application programming interface to access the secure communications protocols as well as APIs to parse and write X.509, PCKS#12, and other required structures which is shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.6.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 running on Dell PowerEdge R430 with an Intel(R) Xeon(R) E5 with PAA
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 running on Dell PowerEdge R430 with an Intel(R) Xeon(R) E5 without PAA (single-user mode)
