The question is...
5. Which of the following are true about SSL?
a. SSL facilitates secure communication
b. SSL is a high level protocol and sits on top of HTTP
c. SSL is a low level protocol and sits below HTTP
d. SSL works only with HTTP
The answer says it's...
a,b
I firmly believe that it should be: a,c.
The following blurb from Introduction to SSL supports my answer.
"The SSL protocol runs above TCP/IP and below higher-level protocols such as HTTP or IMAP"
Regards,
Byron

Byron,
Technically answer should be only "a" SSL is not tied to HTTP but yes you are right about C "SSL is a transport layer protocol" and HTTP i.e., Application layer protocol is above it.
If HTTP is to be there then question should be re-phrased "What is true about HTTPS ?"

Errors and points of disagreement are common on the mock exams. Never the less, they will improve your score when there's money on the line.

Rufus,
I couln't agree more. We may learn the most when we're forced to challenge and question what we believe. I am greatful to everyone who provides these types of resources. I hope to add to it after I have completed the certification.
