I'm aware that Diffie-Hellman is a key exchange algorithm whereas RSA is an asymmetric encryption algorithm.
I have the following questions:
During TLS handshake, will both
DHbe used? (I don't see the use of it, either
DH, we will be using it to end up with a safe symmetric key for
An example of a cipher suite is
EDH-RSA-DES-CBC3-SHA. That is pretty confusing. Should it not be
EDH-DES-CBC3-SHA, two separate cipher suites?
Apart from historical reasons, is there a reason for us still to use
When would I use
RSA? (Thinking as a practitioner)
If my understanding of
TLS is wrong, please do correct me.
