The primary goal of the Secure Socket Layer protocol (SSL) is to provide confidentiality and data integrity between two communicating entities. Since the most computationally expensive step in the SSL handshake protocol is the server's RSA decryption, it is introduced that the proposed secret exchange algorithm can be used to speed up the SSL session initialization. This paper first points out that the previous batch method is impractical since it requires multiple certificates, then it proposes a unique certificate scheme to overcome the problem. The optimization strategy, which is based on the constrained model considering the user requirements-aware security ranking, focuses on the optimal result in different public key sizes.
