DescriptionThe remote web server implements Strict Transport Security (STS).
The goal of STS is to make sure that a user does not accidentally downgrade the security of his or her browser.
All unencrypted HTTP connections are redirected to HTTPS. The browser is expected to treat all cookies as 'secure' and to close the connection in the event of potentially insecure situations.
