It is part of the Handshaking. it exposes the Random valuepremaster secret but only to the server and client not to anyone in between. NONo one but the server can access the random value generatedsecret generated by the client due to no one but the server having the secret key to decrypt with.

And yes itApparently my awnser is alsolacking Quoting @Raz here to be more uniform in form with encryption techniques like DHmake it a better awnser. (incorperated into my awnser above)

no the premaster secret is encrypted with the server's public key. The client and server ransoms are used with it (and other constants) to generate the Master key. Which is then used to generate sessions keys. Might want to read the answers for How Does SSL work for more details on the handshake
