Transport Level Security

Transport Layer Security or TLS is a protocol which is designed to provide privacy and security for Internet communications. TLS is an evolution of the older technology SSL, but SSL or Secure Socket Layers is still frequently used to describe the certificates and methods of securing web applications with a URL starting https://. TLS provides encryption, authentication and integrity to communications between endpoints and is now considered the minimum security expected.
