SSLSocket for Windows Phone

The .NET 4.0 version of SecureBlackbox contains a SSLSocket.dll assembly. Unfortunately this is missing from the Silverlight and from the Windows Phone versions. It would be great if this could be added.

If you like the idea, vote for it on https://www.eldos.com/sbb/wishlist.php

It is recommended to use ElSimpleSSLClient instead - it's much more powerful, with built-in support for IPv6, DNSSEC, various kinds of proxy etc.

SecureBlackbox.SSLSocket.DLL is an SSL-enabled version of .NET Framework socket class. In Silverlight sockets are severely crippled (no synchronous methods, no Poll/select(), no Bind, no Listen/Accept) and rewrite of your code would be required no matter if you use SSL or not.
