[HDGEM] TLS (formerly SSL) is a security protocol that can be added to HTTP to increase the security of your website

  1. encryption: This protects the privacy of the communication between client and server.
  2. properly authenticating yourself: the client can trust that you are really you. The TLS handshake that is made at the beginning of the connection ensures the client that no one is trying to impersonate you;
  3. data integrity: this ensures that no one has tampered with the data in a request/response cycle;
The TLS layer can be added to other protocols too, such as FTP (making it FTPS) or WebSockets (making ws://wss://).
