Re: TLS Session Resumption



The reason being that the lousy TLS API in .NET doesn't support real
strong ciphersuites :(
Vista and Server 2008 with the 6.1 SDK is what you probably want to
use. SSLTLS support includes ECC gear from Suite B. The collection is
the same list you'd expect from FireFox. A couple of references are
below.

Hello group,

I'm spending a lot of time having trying to implement session
resumption on a C# client to talk TLS to Java.

Now, the resuming handshake fails on the checksum, so I'm trying to
understand if I need to computer the checksum over all previous
handshake messages, or only with the current handshake's messages?

The spec is not clear about this... can anyone help???
