This completely expanded second edition of SSL and TLS: Theory and Practice provides modernized material and a comprehensive overview of the SSL/TLS and DTLS protocols, including topics such as firewall traversal and public key certificates.

This practical book provides a complete introduction to these protocols, offering readers a solid understanding of their design. Updates to this edition include coverage of recent attacks mounted against SSL/TLS, new broad TLS extensions, and discussions on the importance of public key certificates and Internet PKI.
