Secure Socket Layer - Transport Layer Security (SSL-TLS) technology is an important component of a comprehensive enterprise security strategy. SSL-TLS is a widely used protocol for secure network communications. There are a number of diverse markets that have products using implementations of SSL-TLS. Originally designed as a way to secure browsing of the Web, SSL-TLS implementations are now used in VPNs, Business Transaction Servers, Application Servers, as well as other core business functions. Our goal is to develop a certification testing program that will give buyers of these products the assurance that only a reputable independent third party testing facility like ICSA Labs can provide. That is, a standards based program, with a publicly vetted and posted criteria, against which all products are tested.
