The remote service allows repeated renegotiation of TLS / SSL
The remote service encrypts traffic using TLS / SSL and permits
clients to renegotiate connections. The computational requirements
for renegotiating a connection are asymmetrical between the client and
the server, with the server performing several times more work. Since
the remote host does not appear to limit the number of renegotiations
for a single TLS / SSL connection, this permits a client to open
several simultaneous connections and repeatedly renegotiate them,
possibly leading to a denial of service condition.
