TLS 1.2

The latest version of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol. Uses asymmetric cryptography to assure who is communicating, and to exchange a symmetric key. This session key is then used to encrypt data flowing between the parties. This allows for data/message confidentiality, and message authentication codes for message integrity and as a by-product message authentication.
