Definition

An Internet protocol that safeguards electronic communications between two or more computers. When transmissions are sent over a TLS connection, data is encrypted and cannot be modified in transit by other parties on the Internet.

Web sites that use TLS technology are indicated by an "https" in their Web address, and a lock icon at the bottom right of the browser window.

TLS replaces Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) as the standard for secure Internet connections.
