What is SSL/TLS?

SSL or Secure Sockets Layer is the standard technology for ensuring security of an internet connection while also safeguarding sensitive data exchanged between systems, thereby avoiding any unauthorized modification or transfer of information. TLS or Transport Layer Security is the advanced and more secure version of SSL and works in almost the same way as SSL for using encryption to safeguard the transfer of data. 

What are the important features of SSL/TLS?

The notable features that you can avail with SSL/TLS certificates are as follows,

  • Safety and convenience
  • Server authentication
  • Support of most hashing and encryption algorithms
  • Automatic client authentication

What are the benefits of SSL/TLS?

The prominent benefits of SSL/TLS certificates are as follows,

  • Improved security
  • Instilling trust in site visitors
  • Ease of deployment
  • Support for using HTTP/2
  • Better and secure authentication alongside message integrity and privacy

How does SSL/TLS work?

The working of SSL/TLS can be explained through a focus on understanding the following important principles.

  • Secure communication always starts with a TLS handshake with the two communicating parties opening a secure connection and exchanging the public key
  • The two parties develop session keys during the TLS handshake that help in encryption and decryption of all communications following the TLS handshake
  • Multiple, unique session keys help in encrypting communications in every new session
  • TLS provides assurance for the authentication of the party on the server-side or the website that a specific user interacts with
  • TLS also ensures the integrity of data through including a message authentication code (MAC) with transmissions

What is the TLS handshake?

Every TLS communication session starts with a TLS handshake by leveraging asymmetric encryption. This clearly implies that two distinct keys are employed at the two ends of a communication. As a result, public-key cryptography serves as the foundation for a TLS handshake.

Is there any certification for validating my SSL/TLS basics knowledge and expertise?

No, there is no official certification to validate your SSL/TLS basics knowledge and expertise. On the other hand, you can find various vendor-specific certifications for SSL/TLS skills.

How would learning SSL/TLS basics help me in my career growth?

SSL/TLS is one of the integral components of cybersecurity strategies of many enterprises worldwide. The comprehensive functionalities of SSL/TLS in securing network communication also drive better career opportunities for candidates with SSL/TLS skills. With the growing threat of cybersecurity risks and the necessity for safeguarding sensitive communications, SSL/TLS expertise can provide an exceptional boost to your career growth.
