HTTPS or https
Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure
A type of server software that provides "secure" transactions on the World Wide Web. If a Web site is running on an HTTPS server, you will see HTTPS instead of HTTP in the URL section of your browser. This verifies that you are indeed in the "secured mode." Windows NT HTTPS and Netscape Commerce server software support this protocol.
