What is HTTPS and Advantages of it

HTTPS – Secure HTTP

The HyperText Transport Protocol (Secure), the standard encrypted communication mechanism on the World Wide Web and this is actually just HTTP over SSL.

Advantages of HTTPS

  1. Same as HTTP, only encrypted for security purposes. HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer, or HTTP over SSL) is a Web protocol built into its browser that encrypts and decrypts user page requests as well as the pages that are returned by the Web server and developed by Netscape. HTTPS is really just the use of the Netscape’s Secure Socket Layer (SSL) as a sublayer under its regular HTTP application layering.
  1. The Hypertext Transport Protocol, Secure, the standard SSL communication mechanism of World Wide Web.(1) (HyperText Transport Protocol Secure) The protocol for accessing a secure Web server and using HTTPS in the URL instead of HTTP directs the message to a secure port address rather than the default Web port address of 80. The session is then managed by the security protocol.

    (2) (HyperText Transport Protocol Secure) The protocol for accessing a secure Web server and using HTTPS in the URL instead of HTTP directs the message to a secure port number rather than the default Web port number of 80. The session is then managed by a security protocol.

    (3) (HyperText Transport Protocol Server) A Web server that runs under Windows NT, developed by the European Microsoft Windows Academic Centre.

  1. HTTP layered over the SSL protocol.
  1. Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol.
  1. Secure HyperText Transfer Protocol
  1. Same as HTTP but provides secure Internet communication using SSL.
    A type of server software which provides the ability for “secure” transactions to take place on the World Wide Web. If a Web site is running off a HTTPS server you can type in HTTPS instead of HTTP in the URL section of your browser to enter into the “secured mode”. Windows NT HTTPS and Netscape Commerce server software support this protocol. SEE ALSO: proxy server, secure server and commerce server.
  1. https is ordinary http exchanged over an SSL-encrypted session.A new implementation of the HTTP protocol that provides for more secure web communications by including encryption methods.
  2. A variant of HTTP that encrypts messages for security.(HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure) A secure protocol for sending information forth and back over the Internet and the HTTPS protocol most frequently relies on the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption system but others such as TLS (Transport layer security) are also available. Every attempt has been made to provide you with the correct acronym for HTTPS and if we missed the mark, we would greatly appreciate your help by entering the correct or alternate meaning in the box below.

What are HTTP full headers

The use of full headers is preferred for several reasons which are as follows:

  • The first line of a server header includes a response code indicating that the success or failure of the operation
  • One of the server header fields will be Content-type:, which specifies that a MIME type to describe how the document should be interpreted.
  • If the document has moved, the server can specify its new location with a Location: field and allowing the client to transparently retry the request using the new URL.
  • WWW-Authenticate: and the Authorization: fields allow access controls to be placed on Web documents.
  • The Referer: field allows the client to tell the server the URL of the document that triggered this request and permitting savvy servers to trace clients through a series of requests.

JQuery Accordion

Accordion Functionality can be achieved by many ways one of the way is using jquery.

Name the above file as accordion.html and in the same folder jquery.js file.

you can download same for free from here.

and then have your custom according just waiting for you to use.

DOT NET – What is a cookie

Recently I got a message from one of the reader of my site that what exactly is a cookie. So I decided to wire a post dedicated to it .

  1. A cookie is name=value pair like variable which is stored as a file(persistant cookie) and which travels automatically between every request and response.
  2. Cookies are based on domains(website). As long as user is working with current web site cookie will be available.
  3. Cookies are maintained by browser but not by server which means cookies based websites are dependent on client.
  4. Cookies can be created as
    (i) In-memory cookie
    (ii) Persistant Cookie

An In-memory cookie means as long as user is working with app it will be available – also called as Session Cookie.

Persistant cookie means it will be stored in client physical location and available online as well as offline.

Criticism associated with DOT NET

Performance

C# programs, like all programs written for the .NET and other virtual machine environments such as Java, tend to require more system resources than functionally similar applications that access machine resources more directly.

Platform

Microsoft’s current .NET implementation is only available on Windows.

C Sharp (programming language) and History

C# is an object-oriented programming language developed by Microsoft as part of the .NET initiative and later approved as a standard by ECMA and ISO . Anders Hejlsberg leads development of the C# language, which has a procedural, object-oriented syntax based on C++ and includes influences from aspects of several other programming languages (most notably Delphi and Java) with a particular emphasis on simplification.

History

During the development of .NET, the class libraries were originally written in a language called Simple Managed C (SMC). In January 1999, Anders Hejlsberg formed a team to build a new language at the time called Cool. By the time the .NET project was publicly announced at the July 2000 Professional Developers Conference (PDC), the language had been renamed C# and the class libraries and ASP.NET runtime had been ported to C#.

C#’s principal designer and lead architect at Microsoft is Anders Hejlsberg, who was previously involved with the design of Visual J++, Borland Delphi, and Turbo Pascal. In interviews and technical papers he has stated that flaws in most major programming languages (e.g. C++, Java, Delphi, and Smalltalk) drove the fundamentals of the Common Language Runtime (CLR), which, in turn, drove the design of the C# programming language itself.
