TLS

Transport Layer Security (TLS) encrypts data sent over the Internet to ensure that eavesdroppers and hackers are unable to see what you transmit.

To make the Internet more secure, TLS, the successor to Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), needs to be widely deployed by all kinds of applications across the Internet.  People are generally familiar with TLS from the “https” and lock icons seen in web browsers, although often they know it more as “SSL”, but TLS can be used in so many other applications.
