HTTPS 2017-05-22T21:13:35+00:00


Protecting user privacy is an important aspect and duty of any public service organization. Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is web security protocol that validates and ensures privacy protections are adhered to.



“The American people expect government websites to be secure and their interactions with those websites to be private.”



As the U.S. federal government states, HTTPS guarantees:

  • Confidentiality. The visitor’s connection is encrypted, obscuring URLs, cookies, and other sensitive metadata.
  • Authenticity. The visitor is talking to the “real” website, and not to an impersonator or through a “man-in-the-middle”.
  • Integrity. The data sent between the visitor and the website has not been tampered with or modified.
