Implementation of MKD-WebServer Rating Application for Analysis of Web performance through SSL
In recent years, protocols have been developed to ensure secure communications over the Internet, e.g., the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Secure Electronic Transaction (SET). SSL is a deceptively simple technology. It is easy to deploy. SSL provides the necessary security; users must put more effort into properly configuring their servers. Deployment of these protocols incurs additional resource requirements at the client and server. This may have a negative impact on system performance. A practical model is developed to study the performance of a web server based on SSL.
