An Overview of Secure Sockets Layer

Ms. Dipti S. Charjan, Ms.Priyanka S. Bochare and Yogesh R.Bhuyar


In recent years, there has been tremendous development in Internet. Right from retrieving information about any subject, you can use Internet for many purposes. But when two parties like client and a server are communicating over the Internet, an attacker may interface the communication. Netscape came with 'SSL' i.e. Secure Socket Layer, to avoid this problem and to make the communication over the Internet secure. Today 'SSL' is widely used over the Internet for the secure communication.

 secure sockets layer (SSL) security protocol is largely used nowadays by the World Wide Web to secure Internet communications and an increasing number of handheld devices are provided by the manufacturers with preinstalled applications (e.g. Web browsers) and digital certificates in order to support SSL in wireless environments too. We present first a comprehensive analysis of SSL protocol and the cryptographic algorithms used as building blocks in the protocol.

We demonstrate next that SSL support embedded also in other applications for some mobile devices does not impact significantly on overall application's performance when communicating with other parties. We wanted to use for our experimental setup, APIs and tools that are either available for the majority of the handheld devices or that can be downloaded and tested freely and without major modifications. This is the especially the case of application developers, who preferably would not use modified versions of cryptographic libraries and special drivers characteristic to academic/commercial testing environments. We also developed a tool named SSL performance for testing SSL security protocol's performance when transferring either small amounts of data (e.g. credit card number) or of medium dimension (e.g. a document in PDF format), with handheld devices. We've compared the results obtained with SSLperf on Windows CE-enabled handheld and pocket PCs and 'powerful' Windows 2000/XP-enabled platforms with other related works.
