HTTPs secure communication between web browser and server
HTTPs (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is a secure extension of the HTTP protocol. It establishes a secure connection between a web browser and a web server, protected against eavesdropping or tampering. HTTPs can also include authentication of the remote side.

In the context of NETIO products

  • NETIO 4x smart socket devices can be configured over a secure connection using https (web interface).
  • For the configuration (web interface), a HTTPS port different from the HTTPS port for M2M protocols can be used; see the product configuration.
    However, in this case all M2M protocols based on HTTPS share this other port for M2M communication.
  • Some M2M APIs use HTTPS to transfer text files. This concerns in particular the REST protocols – XML and JSON. For these protocols, HTTPS is a good choice in terms of security and standards.
  • HTTPS is also used by the M2M URL API, which is a simple protocol to switch socket states by accessing a URL e.g. from a web browser.


NETIO smart sockets and PDUs use HTTPs as an extension of HTTP. It can be enabled for the web-based user interface, as well as for M2M APIs such as XML, JSON and others.
