secure server
Last modified: Monday, August 05, 2002 

A Web server that supports any of the major security protocols, like SSL, that encrypt and decrypt messages to protect them against third party tampering. Making purchases from a secure Web server ensures that a user's payment or personal information can be translated into a secret code that's difficult to crack. Major security protocols include SSL, SHTTP, PCT, and IPSec.

See the Server Types page in the Quick Reference section of Webopedia for a comparison of server types.
