Both SSL and TLS protocols works on the basis of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and commonly includes key exchange algorithm to handle security. Apart from just CA authority the strength of SSL cipher depends on length of key, encryption algorithm used to encipher data and Message Authentication Code (also known as SSL MAC). In this post we will have our look on how key length could effect on cipher strength. So depending on the length of initial key generated for data exchange during SSL and TLS communication, ciphers can be divided into following categories.
