comment AES decryption vs encryption speed
This does not generally hold if you consider for example encryption of network traffic. Hence, a performance comparison should load the used data the same way for de- and encryption.

You don't want to implement this yourself. You should rather check how to establish a TLS connection using OpenSSL.

Ok, I just reverted, I guess your comments give the idea now.

Forward secrecy will not save you if someone stores all ciphertexts. It only means that it makes the adversary's life harder as he now has to break many symmetric keys or DH key exchanges....which for example gets easy if someone has a quantum computer.
