Bug#799222: ITP: hitch -- scalable TLS proxy

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Stig Sandbeck Mathisen <ssm@debian.org>

* Package name    : hitch
  Version         : 1.0.0~beta5
  Upstream Author : Varnish Software AB (and others)
* URL             : https://hitch-tls.org/
* License         : BSD
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : scalable TLS proxy

 hitch is a network proxy that terminates TLS/SSL connections and
 forwards the unencrypted traffic to some backend. It's designed to
 handle 10s of thousands of connections efficiently on multicore
  * TLS1.0, TLS1.1 and TLS1.2 support
  * SNI, with and without wildcard certificates.
  * Support for HAproxy's PROXY protocol.

hitch is a fork of stud (https://github.com/bumptech/stud) which has not
been packaged in Debian.

hitch is used at my workplace for TLS termination of online newspapers,
using Varnish as a backend.

Hitch will be maintained in the collab-maint group, or in the
pkg-varnish group. Extra hands for maintenance would be welcome.
