Abstract

This memo proposes a new padding mechanism the TLS and DTLS record protocols. It defines a TLS extension to allow arbitrary amount of padding in any ciphersuite. The new padding mechanism eliminates any known padding oracle attacks on the CBC ciphersuites and allows novel length hiding techniques.
