I don't know whether it is right to ask a question here for my MTech dissertation. I thought there is no good place in the world where I can find security experts like here.
I am interested in doing research in the protocol SSL/TLS. I know a fair bit of knowledge about protocol and underlying primitives. The first paper I found browsing for research areas and give me more exposure for SSL/TLS protocol is 20 Years of SSL/TLS Research An Analysis of the Internet’s Security Foundation by Cristopher Meyer. It discusses the protocol, popular implementations and attacks in this protocol.
I was interested in doing a survey of security vulnerabilities in the SSL/TLS web servers and exploit some. For this I found a good paper Cryptographic Strength of SSL/TLS Servers: Current and Recent Practices. Basically, I had idea of doing same work related to this paper i.e. finding security vulnerabilities that still exist by scanning a list of web servers. Also, there are online tools like ssllabs. Since, most of the work is being already done here, I want to ask experts which work I can do?
If there are some active research work currently being done on SSL/TLS protocol, I would like to know.
