A core capability of the modern Internet is the global transmission of digital information. Successful and secure transmission requires numerous technical standards and protocols, all functioning in harmony. One such protocol is Transport Layer Security (TLS), known previously as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

TLS is the primary method for protecting transmitted content from tampering and eavesdropping. Our new white paper, Transport Layer Security, offers insights into TLS protocol—what it is and how it is structured—and guides you in evaluating current TLS usage in your enterprise.

TLS relies on public key infrastructure (PKI) technology, and we explore the TLS usage issues with respect to PKI rather than underlying risk in the PKI infrastructure. Ensure all communications using TLS are configured appropriately and learn about risks and mitigation techniques. Download your FREE copy today!
