SSL/TLS aktually uses common, powerful and strong encryption algorithms.
However secure peer to peer communication is much more than just that.
SSL security includes, for instance, peer verification and protects
against "Man in the Middle" attacks.


"Man in the Middle" attacks don't work if the "man in the middle" don't know how to handle the encrypted data/protocol he is intercepting. Closed standards are inheritable much more secure than open standards. In this type of projects the use of the of this standard is wrong. He just don't need the SSL implementation complexity, nor the result slow to start communication, just to get his data secure.
