    TCPSocket.upgradeToSecure()

    Non-standard
    This feature is not on a current W3C standards track, but it is supported on the Firefox OS platform. Although implementations may change in the future and it is not supported widely across browsers, it is suitable for use in code dedicated to Firefox OS apps.

    This API is available on Firefox OS for privileged or certified applications only.

    Summary

    The upgradeToSecure method allows turning a TCP non secured connection into a secured one.

    Note: Such a connection upgrade is possible only if the target host supports the STARTTLS command.

    Syntax

    instanceOfTCPSocket.upgradeToSecure();

    Specification
