The following short example from miguel demonstrates the use of TWAPI for communicating over SSL/TLS on Windows.
# Create [ssocket], an ssl-enabled clone of the [socket] command
# The credentials should be in cert.pfx in the same folder as this script, the
# file cert.pwd should contain the password.
# At the bottom of the file we create an echo-server using ssocket.

apply [list {} {
    set base [file normalize [file dir [info script]]]
    set fbase [file join $base cert]
    set ::auto_path [linsert $::auto_path 0 [file join $base twapi-bin]]

    if {![catch {puts "twapi [package require twapi_crypto]"}] \
            && [file exists $fbase.pfx]} {
        # adapted from tls_init_echo_server_creds
        # http://sourceforge.net/p/twapi/code/ci/default/tree/twapi/tests/tlsecho.tcl
        set init_creds [list fbase {
            set f [open $fbase.pfx rb]
            set pfx [read $f]
            close $f
            set f [open $fbase.pwd r]
            set pwd [gets $f]
            close $f

            # Set up the store containing the certificates
            set certStore [cert_temporary_store -pfx $pfx \
                               -password [conceal $pwd]]

            # Set up the client and server credentials
            # Note: the substring should identify your certified url
            set serverCert [cert_store_find_certificate $certStore \
                                subject_substring hunter]
            set creds [sspi_schannel_credentials \
                           -certificates [list $serverCert] \
                           -protocols [list ssl3 tls1.1 tls1.2]]

            cert_release $serverCert
            cert_store_release $certStore

            return $creds
        } ::twapi]
        interp alias {} ssocket {} ::twapi::tls_socket \
            -credentials [::apply $init_creds $fbase]
    } else {
        return -code error "NO TLS"

## The echo server

# An echo server - just to test the tls connection

proc answer {chan h p} {
    if {[set request [gets $chan]] eq {}} return
    puts $chan "Received request: '$request'"
    close $chan
