Secure Socket Layer/Transport Layer Security, a protocol that provides
secure encrypted communication on the Internet. It is used to authenticate
the identity of a service provider (such as a Internet banking server) and
to secure the communications channel.
Otherwise insecure protocols such as FTP, HTTP, IMAP or SMTP can be
transmitted over SSL/TLS to secure the transmitted data. In this case, an
"S" is added to the protocol name, like HTTPS, FTPS etc.
