Can I deliver a form thru http, post it back to the server thru https and be secure?
A friend says that if a form is delivered thru http and the form posts back to an https location it will be transmitted back unencrypted to the https port 443. For the form to post back encrypted, the original form must be delivered thru https.
Is this correct? Can you referr me to an authoritative doc that spells this out (rfc, w3c or browser developer doc)
(Tried using sniffers but on FF they showed unencrytped form info and on IE they showed encrypted.)
