This document specifies the use of SSL 3.0 and possible successor protocols as an authentication method for SOCKS Version 5. The design is similar to, and largely derived from, the integration of GSS-API into SOCKS5 [RFC 1961]. A framework is provided for future extensions, and the use of other 'subauthentication' methods inside SSL is supported.
