Subject sending login credentials using SSL
Date Wed, 28 Aug 2002 13:00:05 GMT
Hi,

Should it be common practice to send login details (username + password) 
via SSL? I'll be using form-based authentication and was wondering about 
how to beef up the security of transmitting username and password over http.

If so how is this generally achieved ie how would one specify that all 
logins should be marked as CONFIDENTIAL?

Thanks
Jim
