There is a tendency formed during the last years – indicating that the default protocol for accessing web pages is the HTTPS protocol. In order this to be done, a valid SSL/TSL certificate issued by authority body should be used. In the scope of this study during the month of August 2019 we examined the web sites of 22 banks licensed in Czech Republic, 15 banks licensed in Slovakia and 22 banks licensed in Hungary. The survey excludes the foreign bank branches which are not supervised by the respective national central banks. We did this survey trying to outline the "good practices" which are used by domestic system administrators of bank's websites in the respective countries.


Keywords – SSL/TSL Certificates; Czech banks; Slovakian banks; Hungarian banks; HTTPS; bank web site.
