The PRIMARY objective of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is to ensure:
only the sender and receiver are able to encrypt/decrypt the data.
the sender and receiver can authenticate their respective identities.
the alteration of transmitted data can be detected.
the ability to identify the sender by generating a one-time session key.
SSL generates a session key used to encrypt/decrypt the transmitted data, thus ensuring its
confidentiality. Although SSL allows the exchange of X509 certificates to provide for identification
and authentication, this feature along with choices C and D are not the primary objectives.
