SSL is an acronym for secure socket layer and it is the standard of security technology that establishes an encrypted connection between a web server and a web browser. SSL certificate verifies that the information that is being transferred between the web server and web browser remains private and what is more important secure.
E-commerce web sites present exciting opportunities but at the same time, nowadays a lot of Internet users are facing security issues. They are concerned about integrity of their private data, especially about their payment details because there are a lot of risks associated with on-line transactions.
SSL will help you to realistically build a solid level of confidence, your customers and web site visitors will rely on the SSL authentication mechanism when they see the golden secure padlock that is recognized by millions of users. Realize the benefits of on-line commerce and get a comprehensive and competitive advantage by securing your web site.
SSL certificate can either be purchased from the official certificate vendors or can be provided to you by your web hosting provider.
Web server executes SSL transactions with a couple of keys: private key and public key. The encryption using the pair of keys ensures that data can be encrypted by one of the key but can only be decrypted by the other key pair.
Normally SSL certificate will contain the following information about the owner of the certificate: the certificate’s holder name, issue and expiration date, the certificate serial number, and digital signature.
