I am currently writing up on HTTP and HTTPS and the advantages of HTTPS. I was thinking, is it possible to securely send data to a server i.e login, which is just HTTP. The result I was thinking that the login credentials are encrypted before being sent e.g. aren't readable (using wireshark) but the server can still retrieve the information.
I can understand why this wouldn't be possible, how to make the server the only one to read the credentials.
Again this was just a thought.
