Subject [users@httpd] How does HTTPS work?
Date Mon, 31 Mar 2003 07:03:10 GMT
For a https:// url, after the browser and server
negotiate on the certificates and the sessoin key, the
browser encrypts all the communication with this key.
I want to see a 'sample HTTPS session', with the
browser doing the above and then sending the GET/POST
request with the encrypted content. Are any additional
headers sent in the case of HTTPS?

Looking at the RAW HTTP data, can one identify if its
a http session or https session?

thanks
rf

PS: sorry, nothing related to Apache.
