TLS (Transport Layer Security) and its deprecated predecessor, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), are cryptographic protocols for securing connections between clients and hosts communicating over a computer network. The differences between the two protocols are relatively minor and technical. TLS uses stronger encryption algorithms than SSL, and TLS has the ability to work on different ports.
