SSL  is stands for Secure Socket Layer it used to secure data between two machines using encryption


Advantage :
Http stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol and Https stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure. As the name suggests Https is more secure than Http when the web server and client communicate using Http protocol the message that are exchanged over the internet that are not encrypted any one can secretly see the message that are exchanged between the client and the web server. That is why any sensitive data like password and financial information that never be used Http protocol. Most of the banking application using Https protocol. Http use port 80 and Https use port 443
