Overview[1][2]#

TLS 1.3 is Transport Layer Security version 1.3 and is a Internet Draft, and details are provisional and incomplete.

The latest Internet Draft we used was TLS 1.3 https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-tls-tls13-18

TLS 1.3 is based on the earlier TLS 1.2 specification.

TLS 1.3 is a major overhaul and has two main advantages over previous versions:

  • Enhanced security
  • Improved speed

TLS 1.3 embraces the "less is more" philosophy, removing support for older broken forms of cryptography. That means you can’t turn on the potentially vulnerable stuff, even if you try. The list of TLS 1.2 features that have been removed is extensive, and most of the exiled features have been associated with high profile attacks.[2]

These include:

Other Major differences from TLS 1.2 include:#

Dropping support for many unsecure or obsolete features including:#

Network Security Services (NSS), the cryptography library developed by Mozilla and used by its web browser Firefox, enabled TLS 1.3 by default in February 2017.
