stunnel is an open-source multi-platform application used to provide a universal TLS/SSL tunneling service.

stunnel can be used to provide secure encrypted connections for clients or servers that do not speak TLS or SSL natively. It runs on a variety of operating systems, including most Unix-like operating systems and Windows. stunnel relies on the OpenSSL library to implement the underlying TLS or SSL protocol.

stunnel uses public-key cryptography with X.509 digital certificates to secure the SSL connection, and clients can optionally be authenticated via a certificate.

If linked against libwrap, it can be configured to act as a proxy-firewall service as well.

stunnel is maintained by Michał Trojnara and released under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) with OpenSSL exception.

Enable snapd

Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.

You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:

With the repository added, import its GPG key:

Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:

Snap can now be installed with the following:
