We are currently working on a web-based Flex (i.e. non-AIR) project that uses sockets to implement REST HTTP operations. We are required to encrypt all network traffic to and from the app, so I set off to fins a secure socket implementation. I came across the (supposedly) not-fully TLS-compliant ASCrypto project but then discovered the Flex 4 SecureSocket class. I nearly jumped up and down with joy and relief before realizing that it is tagged as "AIR-only".
Can someone please tell me why this is? Our project would benefit greatly from a first-party implementation of a SecureSocket but we can't move to AIR.
P.S. Please feel free to suggest any other options that might exist for us to implement secure sockets in Flex.
