Transport Layer Security | TLS
TLS aims to improve the applicability and suitability of the TLS family of protocols for use in other emerging protocols and use cases. TLS and its relatives are widely relied on to implement cryptography on the web and provide secure communication over a network, including in the QUIC protocol. This group is currently working to encrypt the ClientHello Server Name Indication (SNI) , which the client uses at the beginning of the TLS handshake to declare what service (such as a website) the user is requesting. This declaration is necessary for the server to decide which certificate to present. SNI, however, makes it possible for censors or filters to block users from accessing sensitive websites.
