Hello World

Post by alastairhm »

Hello,

I was an Acorn Electron, then BBC B, then Archimedes A3000 uses first time around.

Recently started trying to relearn 6502 for fun and an escape from my day job as a cloud engineer.

Already found some useful information here to help me.

Al.

Welcome!

I heartily recommend the whole "picking up 6502 as an escape from the day job" thing! There are so many resources out there to answer any questions you might have. I can't imagine what it must have been like to develop complicated/difficult techniques 'back in the day' with no internet and fewer reference materials.

Yes I remember the same until I had a college course using it, last year they taught 6502 as it was old even by then.

Now it seems a lot simpler than my day job of AWS, Python and such....

Code: Select all

import socket
from OpenSSL import SSL
import certifi

hostname = 'www.google.com'
port = 443


context = SSL.Context(method=SSL.TLSv1_METHOD)
context.load_verify_locations(cafile=certifi.where())

conn = SSL.Connection(context, socket=socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM))
conn.settimeout(5)
conn.connect((hostname, port))
conn.setblocking(1)
conn.do_handshake()
conn.set_tlsext_host_name(hostname.encode())
for (idx, cert) in enumerate(conn.get_peer_cert_chain()):
    print(f'{idx} subject: {cert.get_subject()}')
    print(f'  issuer: {cert.get_issuer()})')
    print(f'  fingerprint: {cert.digest("sha1")}')

conn.close()
