Password Interception in a SSL/TLS Channel

Khawaja Amer Hayat, Umar Waqar Anis and Tauseef ur Rahman

This study represents the attack and demonstrates the optimized form of it. It works against the latest and most popular implementations of SSL/TLS for password interception. This study showed that a password for an IMAP account can be intercepted when the eavesdropper is near the server in an hour of processing. It can be concluded that the versions of SSL/TLS are insecure when used with block ciphers in CBC mode. Before conclusion the study shows the conditions for the attack. In the end this study propose ways to make these versions strong and much more secure.
