1)When a gmail user opens gmail dot com in his web browser, the user is directed to https.
2)now the ssl hand shake goes through process-
      first the gmail client says hello
      gmail server says hello
      gmail server sends the public key certificate
      gmail server hello done
      client key exchange
      client change cipher spec
      client encrypted handshake message
      server change cipher spec
      server encrypted handshake message


now the client uses the public key to encrypt the message it sends to gmail server and gmail
server uses his private key to decrypt the message.
My question is, which key gmail server is going to use to encrypt the message( his private or public key)
and can any one explain the things happening in each of those 9 process.
