Cleo’s HTTP and HTTPs File Transfer Protocols
HTTP/HTTPs (Hypertext Transfer Protocol/Secure or HTTP over SSL): The foundation of data communication for the Internet, the HTTP application protocol is the one to exchange or transfer hypertext. HTTP defines how messages are formatted and transmitted, and what actions web servers and browsers take in response to various commands. HTTPs is a secure version of HTTP and it allows secure e-commerce transactions. Using HTTPs, computers agree on a code between them over SSL, and then they scramble the messages using that code so that no one in between can read them.
