The website of ICR is much safer and secure, upgraded from HTTP to HTTPS

19 September 2021   400

In recent days, if you visited the website of International Camellia Register, you would find that formerly your browser showed Not Secure (Fig.1) when visited the website, but now you will find the "Not Secure" message had disapeared on your browser but with a padlock to show our website is secure (Fig. 2),  as we had upgraded our website already from http to https. If you input http://camellia.iflora.cn/,  so far the browser will automatically jump to https://camellia.iflora.cn/ . If you would like to remember the link in your brwoser, please record the one with HTTPS.

Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is an extension of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). It is used for secure communication over a computer network, and is widely used on the Internet. In HTTPS, the communication protocol is encrypted using Transport Layer Security (TLS) or, formerly, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). The protocol is therefore also referred to as HTTP over TLS, or HTTP over SSL.
