TLS Handshake : Under The Hood

TLS which is the successor of SSL is a protocol that provides a secure mechanism for authentication using x509 certificates. It also provides a two-way encrypted channel between two parties. Two way encryption means that TLS client can encrypt data to unreadable form and upon receiving, TLS server can decrypt it back to readable form such that any third party entity cannot eavesdrop on the conversation.
