—Secure Socket Layer (SSL) has become a
fundamental technology that secures browser-processed
personal details sent to the server. As a result, communication
and computer engineers are advised to learn the protocol.
However, understanding SSL is very difficult because of its
intricate communication procedure. To solve this problem, we
developed a visualization tool for understanding SSL. This
paper describes the design and implementation methods of the
