What are SSL Certificates?
SSL certificates serve as the backbone of internet security.
SSL certificates, sometimes called digital certificates, are used to establish an encrypted connection between a browser or user’s computer and a server or website. The SSL connection protects sensitive data, such as credit card information, exchanged during each visit, which is called a session, from being intercepted from non-authorized parties.
Creating a Secure Connection
SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted
link—here’s how it works.
Invisible to the end-user, a process called the “SSL handshake” creates a secure connection between a web server and a browser. Three keys are used to create a symmetric session key, which is then used to encrypt all in-transit data.
