SSL works at TCP layer, HTTP works at Application layer. HTTPS is HTTP over SSL. Then you know what will be encrypted.

Kumar Ala, please use real words when you post your messages. Qtn is not a word, and it makes your posts very hard to read and understand.

"Because JavaRanch is an international forum, many of our members are not native English speakers. For that reason, it's important that we all try to write clear, standard English, and avoid abbreviations and SMS shortcuts. "

I changed your subject heading to something more meaningful. The more clear your questions are, the faster and better the response!

Cameron: No probelm , I will be careful while writing next time.

mimi: I was aware of that SSL is above TCP Layer and below Application layer.

Anyway I got my answers from old thread, thanks

SSL will encrypt everything. The entire payload.
