Description

This article is from the Secure Sockets Layer Discussion List FAQ, by Shannon Appel SAppel@consensus.com with numerous contributions by others.

7.2.1) What is the relationship between SSLRef and SSL Plus?

This sub-section contains information specific to the SSL Plus: SSL
3.0 Integration Suite(tm) software toolkit developed by Consensus
Development Corporation of Berkeley, California
<http://www.consensus.com/>.

SSLRef 3.0 was written by Netscape Development Corporation and
Consensus Development Corporation. SSL Plus, a derivative of
SSLRef 3.0, is fully supported and offers unique value-added
features.

SSL Plus 2.0 includes numerous updates to SSLRef 3.0, support, a
VeriSign certificate request tool, and a "signer" file format for
storing keys and certificates. It is qualified for additional
platforms, and system integration services are available. When the
TLS spec becomes official, SSL Plus will be upgraded to that new
protocol.

SSLRef 3.0 offers 4 ciphersuites:

* RSA authenticated, unencrypted, with MD5
(SSL_RSA_WITH_NULL_MD5)

* RSA authenticated with exportable RC4 encryption, and MD5
(SSL_RSA_EXPORT_WITH_RC4_40_MD5)

* RSA authenticated with DES encryption, and SHA
(SSL_RSA_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA)

* Diffie-Hellman anonymous key exchange with DES encryption,
and SHA
(SSL_DH_anon_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA)

SSL Plus 2.0 adds support for an additional 6 ciphersuites:

* RSA authenticated, unencrypted, with SHA
(SSL_RSA_WITH_NULL_SHA)

* RSA authenticated with non-exportable RC4 encryption, with
MD5 or SHA
(SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5 & SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA)

* RSA authenticated with Triple-DES encryption, with SHA
(SSL_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA)

* Diffie-Hellman anonymous key exchange with RC4 encryption,
with MD5
(SSL_DH_anon_WITH_RC4_128_MD5 &
SSL_DH_anon_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA)

* Diffie-Hellman anonymous key exchange with Triple-DES
encryption and SHA
(SSL_DH_anon_WITH_RC4_128_MD5 &
SSL_DH_anon_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA)
