TElHTTPSClient is a descendant of TElSimpleSSLClient. TElHTTPSClient provides client-side functionality for secure HTTP connections.
TElHTTPSClient provides implementation of the client-side HTTP protocol. Also, the component adds SSL/TLS support to HTTP connection.
In general, HTTP/HTTPS connections can be divided into the following steps:
a. Client sends a request (as "GET / HTTP/1.0") to server,
b. Server sends a response back to the client.
Both request and response consist of a set of headers (i.e., name=value pairs) and a body.
The only difference between HTTP and HTTPS is that the HTTPS request and response are transmitted over SSL channel, and thus HTTPS connection is secure.
