About Transport Layer Security (TLS)
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol that ensures that a connection to a remote endpoint is securely encrypted in order to provide privacy and data integrity. Web applications and application programming interface (API) connections use TLS as a key component of their security. TLS 1.2 is the most current version and is considered to be the most secure. TLS 1.0 and 1.1 are earlier, now less secure versions.
