vrf- cgi Encryption tools sought.

Question asked by VRFuser on May 12, 1998
Vee World,
    
     I have an off topic, but quite interesting question for you that deals
     with encryption.
    
     Your feedback would be appreciated on the following pursuit of
     knowledge.  I am doing detective work among friends, collegues and the
     internet to acquire knowledge about software tools that can emulate
     the cgi-navigation that a web-browsers performs.  I would like to use
     some script to automate a performance-evaluation of a web-based
     application.  To simulate 100 users utilization the web-based app. I
     would rather use a scripting tool, or executable that I can spawn
     automatically than try the ridiculous: get 100 users together to
     navigate for a test case.  I know these tools exist, but I have some
     restrictions...read on.
    
     The tools are common for regular cgi-get and put stuff, but my catch
     is that I need SSL3-encryption enabled tools.  This has narrowed the
     pool of tools for me.  'Netcat' was one nice tool for non-encrypted
     stuff.
    
     Any contacts or knowledge that you may have would be valued.
    
     I have identified 'SSLeay' as one SSL-complient tool, but I want more
     options.  The tool can be PC or UNIX.  I would actually prefer PC
     since I have been iritated to have to compile the UNIX source code for
     my HP-UX environment, and often have failures in doing that.
    
     Thanks for your time and for reading this!  Please forward it to folks
     as much as is desired to further my pursuit.
    
     Kindly,
