Compare and contrast, SSL and TLS, MCS51-dec2007-1(g)

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. TLS stands for Transport Layer Security.
Netscape originally developed this protocol. The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) created TLS as the successor to SSL.TLS as the successor to SSL.
SSL works mainly through using public/private key encryption on data. TLS uses stronger encryption algorithms and has the ability to work on different ports
It is commonly used on web browsers It is most often used as a setting in email programs
SSL connections begin with security and proceed directly to secured communications TLS connections first begin with an insecure “hello” to the server and only switch to secured communications after the handshake between the client and the server is successful
