and convenience: SSL creates a secure connection between a client workstation
and a server, and usually requires no participation by the workstation's
2)Server authenticity: SSL authenticates the server to ensure that the
client is talking to the correct computer.
3)Automatic Client Authentication: A workstation operator can authenticate

the server is set up to accept it.
4)Extensibility: SSL can use most encryption algorithms and hashing algorithms.
The client and server can automatically choose the best algorithms from
those they both support.
