TLS is one of the most common but least understood protocol used to secure network connections today. PostgreSQL has a very good support of TLS and today I will explain the important principles behind TLS so you, as a PostgreSQL database administrator, can understand the protocol better and select the most proper security settings in your setup.
Topics to discuss include:
- TLS versions. ciphersuites and TLS handshake
