 * A factory for creating, initializing and connecting sockets.
 * The factory encapsulates the logic for establishing a socket connection.
 * @since 4.0
public interface SocketFactory {

     * Creates a new, unconnected socket.
     * The socket should subsequently be passed to
     * {@link #connectSocket connectSocket}.
     * @return  a new socket
     * @throws IOException if an I/O error occurs while creating the socket
    Socket createSocket()
        throws IOException;

     * Connects a socket to the given host.
     * @param sock      the socket to connect, as obtained from
     *                  {@link #createSocket createSocket}.
     *                  <code>null indicates that a new socket
     *                  should be created and connected.
     * @param host      the host to connect to
     * @param port      the port to connect to on the host
     * @param localAddress the local address to bind the socket to, or
     *                  <code>null for any
     * @param localPort the port on the local machine,
     *                  0 or a negative number for any
     * @param params    additional {@link HttpParams parameters} for connecting
     * @return  the connected socket. The returned object may be different
     *          from the <code>sock argument if this factory supports
     *          a layered protocol.
     * @throws IOException if an I/O error occurs
     * @throws UnknownHostException if the IP address of the target host
     *          can not be determined
     * @throws ConnectTimeoutException if the socket cannot be connected
     *          within the time limit defined in the <code>params
    Socket connectSocket(
        Socket sock,
        String host, 
        int port, 
        InetAddress localAddress, 
        int localPort,
        HttpParams params
    ) throws IOException, UnknownHostException, ConnectTimeoutException;

     * Checks whether a socket provides a secure connection.
     * The socket must be {@link #connectSocket connected}
     * by this factory.
     * The factory will <i>not perform I/O operations
     * in this method.
     * <br/>
     * As a rule of thumb, plain sockets are not secure and
     * TLS/SSL sockets are secure. However, there may be
     * application specific deviations. For example, a plain
     * socket to a host in the same intranet ("trusted zone")
     * could be considered secure. On the other hand, a
     * TLS/SSL socket could be considered insecure based on
     * the cipher suite chosen for the connection.
     * @param sock      the connected socket to check
     * @return  <code>true if the connection of the socket
     *          should be considered secure, or
     *          <code>false if it should not
     * @throws IllegalArgumentException
     *  if the argument is invalid, for example because it is
     *  not a connected socket or was created by a different
     *  socket factory.
     *  Note that socket factories are <i>not required to
     *  check these conditions, they may simply return a default
     *  value when called with an invalid socket argument.
    boolean isSecure(Socket sock)
        throws IllegalArgumentException;
