Authors: AbdelNasir Alshamsi, Takamichi Saito


IPSec (IP Security) and SSL (Secure Socket Layer) have been the most robust and most potential tools available for securing communications over the Internet. Both IPSec and SSL have advantages and shortcomings. Yet no paper has been found comparing the two protocols in terms of characteristic and functionality. Our objective is to present an analysis of security and performance properties for IPSec and SSL.
