which algorithm is used in HTTPS?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer, or HTTP over SSL) is a Web protocol developed by Netscape and built into browser applications that encrypts and decrypts user page requests as well as the pages that are returned by the Web server.

HTTPS doesn’t specify one specific encryption algorithm, or cipher, to use. The client and server can negotiate on what to use. For instance, in an Apache web server config for an HTTPS vhost, you have this setting:

## SSL Cipher Suite:
# List the ciphers that the client is permitted to negotiate.
# See the mod_ssl documentation for a complete list.
SSLCipherSuite ALL:!ADH:!EXPORT56:RC4+RSA:+HIGH:+MEDIUM:+LOW:+SSLv2:+EXP:+eNUL

    The replication algorithm does not have to run on either the source’s or target’s server. It could be run from anywhere with read access to the source and write access to the target. However, it’s nearly always run by either the source or target server and TouchDB only supports those modes. Replication run by the source is commonly called a “push”, and by the target is called a “pull”. An implementation run by the source or target server may optimize by using lower-level APIs to operate on the local database
