Combinatorial Coverage Analysis of Subsets of the TLS Cipher Suite Registry



Dimitris Simos, Kristoffer Kleine, David R. Kuhn, Raghu N. Kacker


We present a combinatorial coverage measurement for (subsets) of the TLS cipher suite registries by analyzing the specified ciphers of IANA, ENISA, BSI, Mozilla and NSA Suite B. Our findings contribute towards the design of quality measures of recommended ciphers for TLS, and also lead to important questions regarding the future development of TLS.
