The default Apache configuration file is HTTP only. For obvious security reasons, it is recommended to generate a SSL certificate and modify the configuration of the web server to use it.

HTTPS allows Internet user to check the identity of a web site thanks to an authentication certificate. It guarantees the confidentiality and integrity of the data sent by the user to the web server.
