  If you're using 'secure' as 'confidential', then the client requests
  that protection by making the connection on the SSL port (https:),
  and indicates that it does not require confidentiality by making the
  request on a non-SSL port.

  The service (the printer or print server) probably cares more about
  authentication than confidentiality for IPP, and it can get that on
  a connection that is either confidentiality protected or not using
  Digest Access Authentication.
