Secure Connection


Mount Dora Directory now a Secure Connection!

Secure connections are a combination of two protocols: HTTP and SSL/TLS. The latter are cryptographic protocols that encrypt network connections. The abbreviations translate into Secure Sockets Layer and Transport Layer Security. Apart from web browsing, these protocols are used to encrypt data transfers in emails, online faxes, instant messages, and voice-over-IP. Taken together, HTTPS means that the ‘plain text’ communication of a website is encrypted to increase security.
