We propose two new mechanisms for caching handshake information on TLS clients. The "fast-track" mechanism provides a client-side cache of a server's public parameters and negotiated parameters in the course of an initial, enabling handshake. These parameters need not be resent on subsequent handshakes. Fast-track reduces both network traffic and the number of round trips, and requires no additional server state. These savings are most useful in high-latency environments such as wireless… CONTINUE READING
