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