Issue #5341 has been updated by Eric Hodel.


I think it is best to add SSL session reuse to Net::HTTP because it is very hard to add it at a higher layer without adding hooks to Net::HTTP.

Net::HTTP is great at making connections and reading and writing the HTTP protocol.  I think a higher layer like in #5064 should stick to implementing the features of HTTP beyond what Net::HTTP is good at.

Feature #5341: Add SSL session reuse to Net::HTTP

Category: lib
Target version: 1.9.4


SSL session reuse allows reconnection to an HTTPS server to avoid an SSL handshake which avoids extra computations and network round-trips and increases the performance of SSL connections.
