please do question 2, 3, and 4 from the document. very short assignment.

TLS Cipher Suite Analysis – part 1

In Homework 5 Q7b you identified the cipher suite in an TLS “Server Hello” message.
“”””This is my Cipher Suite: TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 (0x1301)”””” use this

Q2. Cipher suite text code

If you need to select a cipher suite according to the note immediately above begin your answer to this question with the following statement:
I am choosing a cipher suite according to the directions.
Show the cipher suite description (text) from your Homework 6 Q7b
(or the alternate cipher suite as above),as in this fictitious example:
Cipher suite: ABC_DEFG_HIJK_WITH_LMNO_123_XYZ
(1 point)

Q3. Cipher suite – first element

  • The first element of the cipher suite text descriptionis the character/s preceding the first underscore (“_“).In the example above it is represented by the value “ABC“.
  • Briefly explain what the first element indicates.

Show the first element in your cipher suite,as in this fictitious example:
Cipher suite first element: ABC
(1 point)
Base your explanation on an appropriate RFC.
Note: Your answer must be specific to the TLS Handshake, not a generic explanation of a concept represented by the characters in the element.
Your explanation should be 25-50 words.
Any answer with fewer than 25 words will receive only partial credit.
Use only your own words – do not quote from any source in any way.Note: Changing just a few words in a quotation is not using your own words and may be considered a violation of the Honor Code.
Include a URL for an online copy of the RFC, making the URL a hyperlink(such that it opens the page in the default web browser when clicked).
Give the section number within the RFC for the section that supports your explanation. Also give the page number on which that section begins.
(4 points)
c. List the other possible value/s that the first element may take in an TLS Handshake. For each value provide a URL as a hyperlink, a section number, and a page number as immediately above.
(4 points)

Q4. Cipher suite – second element

  • The second element of the cipher suite text descriptions the character/s following the first underscore (“_“)and preceding the text “_WITH“.
  • Briefly explain what the second element indicates.

In some cipher suites the text “_WITH” is not present – in those cases the second element is the characters between the first and second underscores, or between the first and third underscores if there is a numeric value between underscores in the third position.
In the example above it is represented by the fictional value “DEFG_HIJK“.It may have one part, or more than one with an underscore between each part;the example has two parts.
Show the second element in your cipher suite,as in this fictitious example:
Cipher suite second element: DEFG_HIJK
(1 point)
Base your explanation on an appropriate RFC.
Note: Your answer must be specific to the TLS Handshake, not a genericexplanation of a concept represented by the characters in the element.
Your explanation should be 25-50 words.
Any answer with fewer than 25 words will receive only partial credit.
Use only your own words – do not quote from any source in any way.Note: Changing just a few words in a quotation is not using your own wordsand may be considered a violation of the Honor Code.
Include a URL for an online copy of the RFC, making the URL a hyperlink(such that it opens the page in the default web browser when clicked).
Give the section number within the RFC for the section that supports your explanation.Also give the page number on which that section begins,and the first 5 words of the first sentence of that section.
(4 points)
c. The second element refers to a particular algorithm.Briefly explain how this algorithm works.
Base your explanation on an appropriate RFC.
This explanation is independent of the application in which the algorithm is usedi.e. it is not specific to TLS.
Your explanation should be 25-50 words.
Any answer with fewer than 25 words will receive only partial credit.
Use only your own words – do not quote from any source in any way.Note: Changing just a few words in a quotation is not using your own wordsand may be considered a violation of the Honor Code.
Include a URL for an online copy of the RFC, making the URL a hyperlink(such that it opens the page in the default web browser when clicked).
Give the section number within the RFC for the section that supports your explanation.Also give the page number on which that section begins,and the first 5 words of the first sentence of that section.
