TurboTLS for faster connection establishment


This document provides a high level protocol description for handshaking over UDP in the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol (version independent). In parallel, a TCP session is established, and once this is done, the TLS session reverts to TCP. In the event that the UDP handshaking portion fails, TurboTLS falls back to TLS-over-TCP as is usually done, resulting in negligible latency cost in the case of failure.

Keywords: Transport Layer Security (TLS)
