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.

NOTE:	The mail server at 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.
