An AOLserver socket driver is a loadable module which implements the listening socket that accepts new http connections, and handles reads and writes to those connections.

The most common reason to implement a socket driver is to transform the data in some way (encryption) or to support a specialised socket (i.e. unix domain sockets).

Examples of existing socket driver modules are: nssock, nsssl, nsopenssl, nsunix ...
