The code is easy enough to read, the provenance is not so important.

What matters more is that as yet, the library is incomplete:


        /* At present s2n is not suitable for use in client mode, as it
         * does not perform any certificate validation. However it is useful
         * to use S2N in client mode for testing purposes. An environment
         * variable is required to be set for the client mode to work.
