What Does HTTPS Mean ?
HTTPS – (Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol) Extension to HTTP that provides a number of security features, such as Client/Server Authentication, Spontaneous Encryption, and Request/Response Nonrepudiation.
Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (SECURE HYPERTEXT TRANSFER PROTOCOL) is a variant of the standard web transfer protocol (HTTP) that adds a layer of security on the data in transit through a secure socket layer (SSL) or transport layer security (TLS) protocol connection.
SECURE HYPERTEXT TRANSFER PROTOCOL enables encrypted communication and secure connection between a remote user and the primary web server.
Free Merchant Terminal explains Hypertext Transport Protocol Secure (SECURE HYPERTEXT TRANSFER PROTOCOL)
SECURE HYPERTEXT TRANSFER PROTOCOL is primarily designed to provide enhanced security layer over the unsecured HTTP protocol for sensitive data and transactions such as billing details, credit card transactions and user login etc. SECURE HYPERTEXT TRANSFER PROTOCOL encrypts every data packet in transition using SSL or TLS encryption technique to avoid intermediary hackers and attackers to extract the content of the data; even if the connection is compromised.
SECURE HYPERTEXT TRANSFER PROTOCOL is configured and supported by default in most web browsers and initiates a secure connection automatically if the accessed web servers requests secure connection. SECURE HYPERTEXT TRANSFER PROTOCOL works in collaboration with certificate authorities that evaluates the security certificate of the accessed .
