S-Http

s-http

Secure HTTP, or S-HTTP, enables the secure exchange of information and files on the Web. S-HTTP files are encrypted and/or contain a digital certificate. This type of transaction security is likely to be used by financial institutions, because S-HTTP is more secure than a userID and password.
