New Blog Released: Manually Testing SSL/TLS Weaknesses

01 Jun 2015

Today our Australian consultants have launched a blog on the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols which aim to provide client and server systems with a means of establishing an encrypted communication channel. Though best known for putting the "S" in HTTPS,  their use is not limited to web-based systems; they are also commonly used as a wrapper for other unencrypted services such as FTP.
