Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS)

A communications protocol for secure communication on the network.

How does HTTPS work?

HTTPS provides authentication for websites and servers that guard against attacks from unsolicited third parties who may try to hack into the network in the connection points between the different systems. This system adds Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) to SSL/TLS, providing bidirectional encryption when the network is communicating.
