In order to make the web more secure the internet engineering task force has approved or given approval to the transport layer security (TLS) version 1.3. The premium internet standard body, which is the internet engineering task force has decided to give a serious boost to internet security on account of increasing incidences of cyberattacks and growing number of criminals. This is a much-needed update in order to make the internet more secure. The new version of transport layer security 1.3 which is a security layer will become a standard method by which encrypted communication takes place between client and server across the internet or web.

The 1.3 Transport Security layer protocol enables client service applications to communicate safely over the web or internet such that tampering, eavesdropping, and message forgery cannot be done. The TLS 1.3 protocol has been approved and therefore it will be implemented across the globe and also be used in products and software such as Google’s Chrome browser or Oracle’s Java. This new protocol has done away with many of the antiquated encryption algorithms as hackers and eavesdroppers have found ways to gain access or figure out a way to find which keys had been used before so as to decrypt messages and easily decode previously sent messages. As with all new regulations and policies, there are counter arguments such as what if the police or the good guys need to break in.
