comment How does SSL/TLS work?
@ThomasPornin Thanks for the response. Right, but all application data is authenticated using a MAC. If an attacker did close the connection while a record was in transit, how could he truncate any application without failing the MAC check?

@ThomasPornin Great answer. Regarding "the attacker could truncate the data without being caught", would that not fail the MAC check?
