Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Tue, Nov 13, 2018 @ 04:38 AM

It even has data integrity checks as well as a form of server and client authentication. So, even if you run AS2 over HTTP, your data can already get a good amount of protection. Still, it wouldn't hurt to add more layers of protection. And you can do that if you run your AS2  transactions over HTTPS.
