Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), both frequently referred to as "SSL", are cryptographic protocols that provide communications security over a computer network. Most people see this when visiting secure sites such as online banking, or systems where a username and password must be entered (https). By using SSL and encryption, this means the username and passwords input are not sent across the internet in plain txt format making it more difficult for attackers to gain credentials.
