Summary0004982: Strict Transport Security CAP
DescriptionPretty much just a heads-up: people have been working on an STS policy implementation for IRCv3[1], set for v3.3 it looks like. I realise it's still in draft status, hence the low priority and this being just a heads-up. =] You can follow development on Github[2] though.

I'm fairly certain a lot of people would like to see this implemented in Unreal (eventually), as there's little to no use for plaintext connections anymore in this day and age.

For a list of clients and servers that support it as of yet, check references [3] and [4]. Just look for a row with "draft/sts". Sidenote: I also noticed [4] only seems to account for Unreal 3.x, not sure if there's anything you can do to rectify that though.

Yeah, I agree, wish to support this. I use STS on all my websites but IRC has been lacking support for this.. even worse, IRC is used to self-signed certificates which only prevent passive attacks, not active.
Ah well. No need to write more.. the usefulness and purpose is clear :D
