What is network security protocol?

Last Update date : 2017.10.31

Network security protocols refer to types of network protocols that ensure the security and integrity of data in transit over a network connection. Network security protocol is defined as the process and methodology to secure network data from any illegitimate attempt to review or extract the contents of data.


The primary tool used to protect information as it travels across a network is cryptography. Cryptography uses algorithms to encrypt data so that it is not readable by unauthorized users. Generally, cryptography works with a set of procedures or protocols that manage the exchange of data between devices and networks. Together, these cryptographic protocols enhance secure data transfer.
