What is TLS?


Transport Layer Security (TLS) is designed to provide privacy and data integrity for communicating applications.

The cryptographic protocol, which secures communications over a computer network, is an evolution of Netscape’s Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

TLS secures communications between servers and web browsers. This means that sensitive information such as credit card numbers and passwords can be sent to the server without fear of interception.
