I disagree. From my experience, Mikrotik is not the fastest at answering inquiry emails, so, I thought I would ask here where I seem to get answers faster.
Also, I've seen people from Mikrotik answer from time to time on these forums, even if this is a "users" forum, I was hoping to get an answer from them instead.
Mikrotik didn't use to have big switches that tried to compete with Cisco, Aruba, HP... Now they do. I expect them to strive for the same level of features completeness, including a (very basic) SSL auth mechanism.
If these newer, bigger, better switches can run a full fledged RouterOS, they can certainly spare a few megs for an SSL library.
If they don't want to improve on SWOS because of its lineage or other limitation, maybe they could improve the switch chip management interface within winbox to easily manage it from RouterOS?
My two cents...
