This port is used for secure web browser communication. Data transferred across such connections are highly resistant to eavesdropping and interception. Moreover, the identity of the remotely connected server can be verified with significant confidence. Web servers offering to accept and establish secure connections listen on this port for connections from web browsers desiring strong communication security.
Once established, web browsers inform their users of these secured connections by displaying an icon ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â a padlock, an unbroken key, etc. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â in the status region of their window.
So I guess before flaming noobs here, read the question carefully.
