 +# SSL Renegotiation Indication Extension
 +
 +The SSL Renegotiation Indication Extension - RNI - is an improvement on [SSL](/​glossary/​s/​ssl) and [TLS](/​glossary/​t/​tls) aimed to prevent unauthorized connections where a service wrongly identifies an injected connection as belonging to a previously authorized client. ​
 +
 +RNI achieves this by encrypting the [TLS](/​glossary/​t/​tls) renegotiation so it is specific to the client.
