Perhaps it's a good idea for me to use IUP, too, since none of the
intended users actually run macOS and IUP is very good at preserving
native look and feel on Windows and *nix-like operating systems.

LuaSec is very simple to use but is only able to verify connections with
certificates loaded from files, unless I overlooked a method. Luaossl
is much more verbose and may not be supported on Windows.

But there is no such thing as "free lunch", I guess.

Thank you for the suggestion! Being able to build the whole Android app
in Lua is great.

Best regards,
