  2. 2.  Introduction to HTTP  Limitations to HTTP  Introduction to HTTPS  Implementation of HTTPS  HTTPS Encryption  Identify secure connection  Disadvantages of HTTPS  HTTP vs. HTTPS  Conclusion
  3. 3.  HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) is the set of rules for transferring files (text, graphic images, sound, video, and other multimedia files) on the world wide web.  HTTP uses default port 80.  The client submits an HTTP request message to the server. The server, which provides resources such as HTML files and other content, or performs other functions on behalf of the client, returns a response message to the client.
  4. 4.  Unsecured  Does not use certificates  Privacy  Integrity  Authentication
  5. 5.  HTTPS = HTTP + SSL  HTTPS stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer, or HTTP over SSL.  HTTPS by default uses port 443.  URL's beginning with HTTPS indicate that the connection is encrypted using SSL.
  6. 6.  HTTPS is implemented using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).  HTTPS by purchasing an SSL Certificate.
  7. 7.  SSL certificates becomes the "passport" or the digital document that verify that the security and authenticity of the interaction.  The SSL certificate is installed on a web server to identify the business using it to encrypt sensitive data such as credit card information.  SSL Certificates give a website the ability to communicate securely with its web customers.
  8. 8.  An SSL Certificate enables encryption of sensitive information during online transactions.  Each SSL Certificate contains unique, authenticated information about the certificate owner.  A Certificate Authority verifies the identity of the certificate owner when it is issued.
  9. 9.  Each SSL Certificate consists of a Public key and a Private key.  So during a secure communication, the browser encrypts the message using the public key and sends it to the server. The message is decrypted on the server side using the Private key.
  10. 10.  In Internet Explorer, you will see a lock icon in the Security Status bar. The Security Status bar is located on the right side of the Address bar. You can click the lock to view the identity of the website.  If the information does not match or the certificate has expired, the browser displays an error message or warning and the status bar may turn RED.
  11. 11.  HTTPS is slightly slower than HTTP  HTTPS adds computational overhead as well as network overhead.
  12. 12.  URL begins with “http://" in case of HTTP while the URL begins with “https://” in case of HTTPS.  HTTP is unsecured while HTTPS is secured.  HTTP uses port 80 for communication while HTTPS uses port 443 for communication.  HTTP operates at Application Layer while HTTPS operates at Transport Layer.  No encryption is there in HTTP while HTTPS uses encryption.  No certificates required in HTTP while certificates required in HTTPS.
  13. 13.  The HTTP network protocol is fundamental to the way the World Wide Web works, and the encryption involved in HTTPS adds an essential layer if confidential information or sensitive data are to be exchanged over the public internet.
