Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol designed to enable encrypted and authenticated communications across the Internet. It is used mostly in communications between browsers and web servers. URLs (i.e. web addresses) that begin with 'https' indicate that a TLS connection will be used.
TLS is the standard security technology for creating an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remain private and integral. TLS is an industry standard and is used by websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers. In order to be able to generate a TLS link, a web server requires a Server Certificate.
IRIS works to protect the security of your data during transmission by using the Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology. All transactions are automatically encrypted from your browser to our website using TLS. The TLS protocol is used extensively on the Internet and is a well-proven industry standard for browser encryption technology.
While we will continue to implement security controls to protect your data, it is equally important for you to take precautionary measures and proactive steps in protecting your computer and the use of your Login ID and password. Be sure to sign off after using a shared computer.
