>A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
directories.
>This draft is a work item of the Transport Layer Security Working Group of
the IETF.
>
> Title : HTTP Over TLS
> Author(s) : E. Rescorla
> Filename : draft-ietf-tls-https-01.txt
> Pages : 6
> Date : 13-Mar-98

> 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.

>Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP. Login with the username
>"anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address. After logging in,
>type "cd internet-drafts" and then
> "get draft-ietf-tls-https-01.txt".

>NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
> MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
> feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
> command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
> a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
> exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
> "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
> up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
> how to manipulate these messages.

>Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
>implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
