socat is a relay for bidirectional data transfer between two
independent data channels. Each of these data channels may be a file,
pipe, device (serial line etc. or a pseudo terminal), a socket (UNIX,
IP4, IP6 - raw, UDP, TCP), an SSL socket, proxy CONNECT connection,
a file descriptor (stdin etc.), the GNU line editor (readline),
a program, or a combination of two of these. These modes include
generation of "listening" sockets, named pipes, and pseudo terminals.
socat can use the OpenSSL FIPS module, if it is installed on your system.
Upon install, you may want to read the SECURITY file in the documentation
