What is https URI scheme?

https is
a URI scheme that is, aside from the scheme token, syntactically identical to the
http scheme used for normal HTTP connections, but which signals the browser to use
an added encryption layer of SSL/TLS to protect the traffic. SSL is especially suited
for HTTP since it can provide some protection even if only one side of the communication
is authenticated. This is the case with HTTP transactions over the Internet, where
typically only the server is authenticated
