breaking SSL?

A presentation at Black Hat demonstrated some techniques for breaking SSL.  Thoughtful analysis provided by Dan Kminsky in this post, including a reference to a PDF of the original presentation.

As frequently happens, you can find securiy holes in how the crypto algorithms are integrated into an application that humans use.

Reading thru Dans analysis provdies some good insight in how to understand the problems and attacks.
