I am using SSL .  Can anyone explain the difference with SSL and SHTTP.  Do they work together or seperately?  My URLs begin with https - does this mean it's SHTTP or SSL?
How do you implement SHTTP?

Thanks in advance

SHTTP is HTTP expanded with commands for encryption, it is limited to HTTP protocol.
SSL is independent of the used protocol, it can handle HTTP as well as for example ftp.
SSL can also handle SHTTP.

AFAIK, SHTTP is in rare use.
