This paper describes the HTTPS protocol which actually consists of two other protocols, namely HTTP and TLS. The HTTP is the most widely used internet protocol for transfering hypertext, images, videos, xml files and other types of data over the web. The TLS protocol was created with the purpose of protecting communication and exchange of data over the web. This protocol is designed to provide three essential services to its users: authentication, encryption and data integrity. TLS establishes a cryptographically secure data channel between two computers with a so called TLS „handshake“ while using asymmetric cryptography. Together, these two protocols make up the HTTPS protocol which is considered the safest protocol for secure transactions over the web.
