Hello Sharon,

yes - you use SSL.

Hi all.
When using WebRequest.Create("https://...")
Is the communication secured?
Also, when using Msxml2.XMLHTTP.3.0 open method
with https protocol in the url, is the communication secured?
The second question is not dot net related, but if you
know the answer, I'll appreciate it.
Thanks.
Sharon.

Hello Sharon,

i am quite sure, they prolly use WinInet under the covers -

easiest way to find out: install a network monitor (www.ethereal.com or MS
Netmon) and have a look at the packets. HTTP looks very much different than
HTTPS on the wire.

Thanks Dominick for your reply.
I'm still not sure about the usage of Msxml.XMLHTTP
com component in asp pages, as i couldn't find any documentation that says
it is secure.
Are you sure that this component uses SSL when passed
a URL with https?

You are absolutely right.
Installed Ethereal and the only communication,
when activating msxml was SSLv3.
Thanks a bunch.
Sharon.
