Does Jira include auhtenitcaiton and TLS when making API calls to JIRA?


I'm currently preparing for an Security Assessment for my service.

My service calls JIRA and I am wondering when performing API requests to JIRA if it shall automatically send this encrypted over?

I wrote my service in python.

Are there additional best practices that should be implemented regardinf security when making API calls to JIRA?
