Websockets

Websockets | TLS
WebSockets are a protocol that allows bi-directional connections to be made between a client and a server over the Internet. They are often used to enable real-time interactions, for example in chat applications, online games, or applications that rely on live data.

WebSockets are established via a handshake between client and server, and the WebSocket protocol is built on top of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol to ensure secure connections. After the handshake is complete, both the client and the server can send and receive data over the WebSocket connection.

WebSockets are often used in combination with other technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to enable user interactions in web applications. They can also be used with server-side technologies such as Node.js and WebSocket libraries in other programming languages.

An important advantage of WebSockets over other technologies such as HTTP is that they consume fewer resources and provide faster response times because they do not rely on establishing new connections to send and receive data. They are therefore particularly well suited for applications that rely on fast interactions and smooth communication.

BITS experts have used Websockets in a variety of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.
