o RSA: A 48-byte pre_master_secret key, enciphered with the public key from the server's
certificate or the temporary RSA key provided in a server key_exchange message. This
pre_master_secret key is used to derive the master_secret key.
o Diffie-Hellman: The client’s Diffie-Hellman public value (gX mod p). If Diffie-Hellman is
used, both client and server perform the Diffie-Hellman calculation to create a pre_master key. 44 VPN, IPSec and TLS Key Calculation – Key and MAC Secrets

parameters provided by the Handshake Protocol. As stated before, the master_secret generated
during the Authentication and Key Exchange is used as an entropy source to generate keys and
MAC secrets. The key material is generated as follows:
key_block = PRF (SecurityParameters.master_secret, "key
expansion", SecurityParameters.server_random ||
until enough key material is generated for the following four items: client write MAC secret, server
write MAC secret, client write key, and server write key.
• The master secret is a 48-byte secret shared between the two peers in the connection. The client
random is a 32-byte value provided by the client, and the server random is a 32-byte value
provided by the server.
• The pseudorandom function (PRF) is used to expand secrets into blocks of data for the purposes of
key generation or validation. The PRF takes as input a secret, a seed, and an iden...
