Transport Layer Security (TLS)

SurePassID Universal MFA secures all data in motion to prevent eavesdropping and tampering.


Transport Layer Security (TLS), the successor standard to Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), is a cryptographic protocol designed to secure data in motion over a computer network. TLS is composed of a record protocol, which provides a secure connection, and a handshake protocol, which allows the server and client to authenticate each other before exchanging any data.

There are three main aspects of TLS:

  • Encryption – Hides the data being transferred from third parties.
  • Authentication – Ensures that the parties exchanging information are who they claim to be.
  • Integrity – Verifies that the data has not been forged or tampered with.

How SurePassID works with TLS

SurePassID uses TLS to secure all data in motion, thus preventing data eavesdropping and tampering. All data in transit is secured by TLS 1.1 or greater, with 1.2 being the default.

The SurePassID Universal MFA platform provides support for all major TLS transports, such as Windows Secure Channel.

Secure Data in Motion

SurePassID secures your data in motion with TLS, thus eliminating the risk of data eavesdropping and tampering.
