Hierarchy Level


Enable SSL session cache.

You can enable session caching to cache session information, such as the pre-master secret key and agreed-upon ciphers, for both the client and server.

The cached information is identified by a session ID. In subsequent connections both parties agree to use the session ID to retrieve the information rather than create a new pre-master secret key. Session resumption shortens the handshake process and accelerates SSL transactions there by improves the throughput and maintains an appropriate level of security at the same time.
