TLS 1.3 launched in August 2018. At that time, it had been eight years since the last time TLS updated. A lot of things have happened in eight years – smartphones became the norm rather than the exception, the cloud gained primacy, and high-speed mobile and wired internet blanketed increasingly large swathes of the globe. While these changes have made things easier for consumers, they’ve also made it easier for attackers to spy on their connections and steal their data. In other words, an update to TLS has been more than overdue.
