You can use the eassl or edssl daemon as a proxy. This takes about
370K of disk space on SunOS, once it has been built. You would have
to compile OpenSSL or SSLeay first, but it could then be deleted
or archived off line. You still have the RSA licensing problem to
deal with if you don't meet requirements to use RSAref at no charge
(assuming you are in the US).
