ALSO CALLED: 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.
