This is a reminder to keep discourse here courteous and respectful. We want this mailing list to be maximally useful for all readers. Dismissive or otherwise disrespectful replies are counter to that goal. Please check out the official Code of Conduct [1] for more information.

Michael, since your question is more related to the cryptographic primitives used by TLS than the protocol itself, the chairs encourage you to continue this discussion on the CFRG mailing list [2]. 

Thanks,
Chris, on behalf of the chairs
