HTTPS originally used the SSL protocol which eventually evolved into TLS, the current version defined in RFC in May That is why. When connecting to a server over HTTPS, it’s important to check the hostname you intended to contact against the hostnames (CN and subjectAltNames) in the . To protect the user data from third party attacks on the communication channel side, we should use a secure method like HTTPS [12] for data communication.

Submit a new link. The security of HTTPS is that of the underlying TLS, which typically uses long-term public and private keys to generate a short-term session keywhich is then used to encrypt the data flow between client and server.
