How Does Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) Work?

Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, abbreviated as HTTPS, provides authentication for websites and servers that guard against “man-in-the-middle” attacks, allowing users to trust that a given website or asset accurately represents itself through its web address. This system adds Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) to SSL/TLS, providing bidirectional encryption.
