TLS/SSL
Posted by Louie Wong on 7 February 2017 10:55 pm

Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) are two different communication protocols that allow applications to communicate securely over the Internet using data encryption. TLS is based on SSL, but has a different initial handshake protocol and is more extensible. TLS and SSL are not interoperable. That is, an application using TLS cannot communicate with an application running SSL. Both protocols are widely used.
