HSTS(HTTP Strict Transport Security) A mechanism that prevents websites using the encrypted HTTPS protocol from being downgraded to the unencrypted HTTP. It is implemented by a header record sent from the server stating that HTTPS must be used, and compliant Web browsers or other HTTP client programs either conform or display an error message. See HTTPS and HTTP.
