Computer NetworkComputer EngineeringMCA

Both SSL and TLS are security protocols which are widely used to provide security over the web between web browsers and web servers.

Following are the important differences between SSL and TLS.

1Full FormSSL stands for Secure Socket LayerTLS stands for Transport Layer Security.
2Fortezza AlgorithmFortezza algorithm is supported in SSL.Fortezza algorithm is not supported in TLS.
3VersionPresently SSL is in 3.0.Presently TLS is in 1.0
4Master Secret CodeSSL uses Message Digest to create a master secret code.TLS uses a pseudo-random function to create a master secret code.
5AuthenticationSSL uses Message Authentication Code protocol.TLS uses Hashed Message Authentication Code protocol.
6ComplexitySSL is complex than TLS.TLS is simple to implement.
