TLS support is provided by GnuTLS or OpenSSL. If you have a recent version
that can do TLS 1.3, WPE WebKit will support TLS 1.3 as well.
(Longer explanation: WPE WebKit uses libsoup  for networking, which uses
glib-networking  for TLS. In turn, glib-networking can be configured to
be built using GnuTLS or OpenSSL.)
