The use of a ROBOT attack fully breaks the confidentiality of SSL/TLS when used with RSA encryption. It enables an attacker to perform RSA decryption and signing operations with the private key of an SSL/TLS server. As a result, an attacker could record SSL/TLS traffic and decrypt it at a later time.

[ Dec 13, 2017 update: The plot thickens… in early December researchers revived a 19-year-old vulnerability that allows performing RSA decryption and signing operations with the private key of a TLS server – known as The Robot Attack. ROBOT only affects TLS cipher modes that use RSA encryption.] Cipher Suites: Ciphers, Algorithms and Negotiating TLS 1.3 has done away with RSA key exchange – in addition to all other static key exchange mechanisms – because of known vulnerabilities. Diffie-Hellman & Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman Named after Whitfield Diffie and Martin Hellman, this is a key exchange protocol, it’s NOT an asymmetric encryption protocol in the same vein as RSA though. What Happens in a TLS Handshake? | SSL Handshake | Cloudflare What is a TLS handshake? TLS is an encryption protocol designed to secure Internet communications. A TLS handshake is the process that kicks off a communication session that uses TLS encryption. During a TLS handshake, the two communicating sides exchange messages to acknowledge each other, verify each other, establish the encryption algorithms they will use, and agree on session keys.

RFC 5246 TLS August 2008 1.Introduction The primary goal of the TLS protocol is to provide privacy and data integrity between two communicating applications. The protocol is composed of two layers: the TLS Record Protocol and the TLS Handshake Protocol. At the lowest level, layered on top of some reliable transport protocol (e.g., TCP []), is the TLS Record Protocol.

Transport Layer Security (TLS) provides security in the communication between two hosts. It provides integrity, authentication and confidentiality. It is used most commonly in web browsers, but can be used with any protocol that uses TCP as the transport layer. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is the predecessor of the TLS protocol.
