Hypertext Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer,
HTTP over Secure Socket Layer,
HTTP over SSL DEFINITION: Web protocol developed by Netscape and built into its browser that encrypts and decrypts user page requests as well as the pages that are returned by the Web server. HTTPS is really just the use of Netscape's Secure Socket Layer (SSL) as a sub-layer under its regular HTTP application layering. HTTPS uses port 443 instead of HTTP port 80 in its interactions with the lower layer, TCP/IP.
The Internet is not automatically a secure or safe place to be. However, if one system's security is more daunting to overcome than another's, then attackers might focus on the system that is easier to compromise.
This paper addresses the problems of unsecured Wi-Fi including recent security concerns such as the Firesheep and sidejacking, and how to protect against these attacks. Learn how public websites can provide security with TLS/SSL by not only harden against many attacks, but also assure users of that security.
This paper explains the two primary methods for discovering Web application vulnerabilities: using manual penetration testing and code review or using automated scanning tools and static analysis.
Many organizations embark on global multi-million dollar web application deployments only to later discover that their users are unsatisfied with the performance compared to their old client server application. This paper provides alternatives.
