November 28, 2020 - Reading time: ~1 minute

TLS provides the following properties:

  • Integrity
    An outsider should be unable to tamper the message (hash includes validation)

  • Confidentiality
    Through encryption/decryption only the originator party and the destination will be able to see the content of the message.

  • Non-repudiation

  • No Replay

  • Authenticity
    message authentication code (MAC), sometimes known as a tag, is a short piece of information used to authenticate a message—in other words, to confirm that the message came from the stated sender (its authenticity) and has not been changed.
