This draft describes the old-style/classic/depreciated method of doing
security by https:// over a separte port number (443).  Since this method
has specifically been vetoed by the area director, the method isn't one we
should worry about.

>    This memo describes how to use TLS to secure HTTP connections over
>    the Internet. Current practice is to layer HTTP over SSL 
> (the prede-
>    cessor to TLS), distinguishing secured traffic from 
> insecure traffic
>    by the use of a different server port. This document documents that
>    practice using TLS. A companion document describes a 
> method for using
>    HTTP/TLS over the same port as normal HTTP.
