TLS (Transport Layer Security)

A protocol that is intended to secure and authenticate communications across a public network through data encryption.

A protocol that provides communications privacy over the Internet by using symmetric cryptography with connection-specific keys and message integrity checks. TLS provides some improvements over SSL in security, reliability, interoperability, and extensibility. See also SSL.
