Network latency is the time it takes to transmit bytes between computers.

REST (Representational State Transfer)

TCP (Transmission Control Protocol)

Lets two hosts connect and exchange data.

It ensures reliability of end-to-end communication and checks that all packets are received in the same order that they were sent.

TLS (Transport Layer Security)

Formerly known as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a protocol used by application to communicate securely across a network.

It prevents tampering and eavesdropping on email, web browsing, messaging and other protocols.

Both SSL and TLS are client server protocols that ensures communication privacy by using cryptographic protocols to provide security over a network.

A server and client communicating using TLS ensures no third party can eavesdrop or tamper with the message.
