(HTTPS protects against eavesdropping, forging of information, and tampering of data). Meanwhile, data encryption prevents connection problems, cyber infiltration, and electronic eavesdropping, tapping, spying, or intercepting. Moreover, the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol is also used to ensure the non-tampering of information sent via the Internet using the encryption above methods and digital certificates.
