In recent years researchers discovered multiple flaws in the Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) when it is used in practice. This talk will introduce the concepts of TLS/SSL and explain
recent attacks like CRIME or POODLE. It will also include a look at commonly used implementations of the protocols.
