WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HTTP AND HTTPS?
The SSL certificate establishes an encrypted connection between the browser and the web server. The use of HTTP (hypertext transfer protocol) is to transfer data on the internet between a server and a web resource. The server operates the transmission of the request via the browser as well as generating response through the browser.
HTTP is not secure the data is unencrypted as a result, the information can be intercepted by a third party. Any information entered through http website, the attackers can intercept during transfer to the server.
HTTPS is an extension for HTTP, the ‘S’ in the abbreviation stands for secure, where TLS (Transport Layer Security) powers it.
The SSL certificate establishes an encrypted connection between the browser and the web server
If you share your data in a site that don’t have HTTPS such as username, bank details, password etc. the data is susceptible to interception. TLS protects Transmission of data and prevents any tampering and authenticates the server to connect to.
THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HTTPS AND HTTP
The difference between HTTPS and HTTP is that HTTPS has an SSL certificate hence it is secure. SSL certificate ensures data protection.
Sites with HTTPS are safe, any transmission of data from the browser to the server undergoes encryption hence no one can access the information. The location of SSL certificate is between the browser and the server
