Protocols: HTTP and HTTPS

Protocols: HTTP and HTTPS This lesson covers HTTP and HTTPS protocols:
  • Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP): This TCP works in web browsers, the browser sends a ‘get’ request to a web page and all the information is in interpreted into what we see on the screen when we access a web site. All information passed over HTTP is in Clear Text.
  • Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS): This is encrypted HTTP; the information is not in Clear Text. This is used on banking web sites.
