When I connect to a secure sever that has is equipped with SSL certificate.
Logically, the first step is the handshake to discuss the cipher suites etc.
However, the very first time my web browser does a DNS request and comes up with the location of the site, and my browser connects to the website even before starting the handshake, is this step secure (encrypted by the public key of the websites web server by getting its public key from the built in keys in the browser) or no?
What I mean here, what happens the very first thing when I open the browser and type
https://randomness.org the very first time my broswer (computer) and the server come in to contact. Is this connection secure?
