TLS classes and definitions

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol that ensures confidentiality between client and server on the Internet. TLS is the successor to the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). TLS is composed of two layers: the TLS Record Protocol and the TLS Handshake Protocol. The TLS Record Protocol ensures connection security between client and server by using an encryption scheme to encrypt data. The TLS Handshake Protocol allows the server and client to authenticate each other, exchange keys and details of the encryption protocol before any data is exchanged.

The TLS protocol is based on the SSL 3.0 protocol; however, TLS and SSL are not interoperable.
