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.
