Re: [iaik-ssl] SSL sockets with no encryption/hash value computation

The ciphersuites that would seem to suit your needs are
SSL_RSA_WITH_NULL_MD5 and SSL_RSA_WITH_NULL_SHA. They use export strength
RSA for authentication (512 bit), no encryption and either a MD5 or an
SHA MAC. There are no SSL ciphersuites without a MAC.
