The Secure Socket Layer protocol was created by Netscape to ensure secure transactions between web servers and browsers. The protocol uses a third party, a Certificate Authority (CA), to identify one end or both end of the transactions. This is in short how it works.

A browser requests a secure page (usually https://).

The web server sends its public key with its certificate.

The browser checks that the certificate was issued by a trusted party (usually a trusted root CA), that the certificate is still valid and that the certificate is related to the site contacted.

The browser then uses the public key, to encrypt a random symmetric encryption key and sends it to the server with the encrypted URL required as well as other encrypted http data.

The web server decrypts the symmetric encryption key using its private key and uses the symmetric key to decrypt the URL and http data.

The web server sends back the requested html document and http data encrypted with the symmetric key.

The browser decrypts the http data and html document using the symmetric key and displays the information.

SSL certificate is very important for online transaction.Processing transactions securely on the web means that we need to be able to transmit information between the web site and the customer in a manner that makes it difficult for other people to intercept and read. SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, takes care of this for us and it works through a combination of programs and encryption/decryption routines that exist on the web hosting computer and in browser programs (like Netscape and Internet Explorer) used by the internet public.

Now looking at the applications, you need SSL if...you provide online transactions such as online orders and credit cards processing system in your online store, or if you have a sign in facility or if you store private and sensitive data of each user, or if you have a bunch of rules and regulations to be followed regarding privacy and security requirements, or if you want to get confidence of your customer and expect them to trust you.

Moreover, SSL certificates feature a range of encryption levels to be considered to select the strength of trust you want to develop in end user. Certificate Authorities use a wide variety of authentication methods to verify the credentials or information provided by organizations.

Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol designed to enable applications to transmit information back and forth securely. Applications that use the Secure Sockets Layer protocol inherently know how to give and receive encryption keys with other applications, as well as how to encrypt and decrypt data sent between the two.

Short for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol developed by Netscape for transmitting private documents via the Internet. Another protocol for transmitting data securely over the World Wide Web is Secure HTTP (S-HTTP). Whereas SSL creates a secure connection between a client and a server, over which any amount of data can be sent securely, S-HTTP is designed to transmit individual messages securely.

SSL is a protocol which is responsible for transmitting private documents via the Internet in secured way. It's benefits are to have a secure site so that you can use the shopping cart or any other oscommerce cart on your website. SSL allows you to browse your site with "https://" instead of "http://". SSL certificate is a must for e-commerce site as its ensures that the confidential information like credit card numbers and bank account information entered by your customers remains secure. Main advantage of having dedicated SSL is to gain trust of your potential buyers. Some customers may feel uncomfortable to put their credit card details on a website which has different secure URL. If you want your customers to put their credit card details on your shopping cart then dedicated SSL is much better. Dedicated SSL also shows that the SSL Certificate is in your company name and dedicated to your website.

SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, an encryption technology that was created by Netscape. SSL creates an encrypted connection between your web server and your visitors' web browser allowing for private information to be transmitted without the problems of eavesdropping, data tampering, or message forgery.

To enable SSL on a website, you will need to get an SSL Certificate that identifies you and install it on the server. The use of an SSL certificate on a website is usually indicated by a padlock icon in web browsers but it can also be indicated by a green address bar. Once you have done the SSL install, you can access a site securely by changing the URL from http:// to https://. When an SSL certificate is installed on a website, you can be sure that the information you enter (contact or credit card information), is secured and only seen by the organization that owns the website.

Millions of online businesses use SSL certificates to secure their websites and allow their customers to place trust in them. In order to use the SSL protocol, a web server requires the use of an SSL certificate. SSL certificates are provided by Certificate Authorities (CAs).

Online Safety is essential to doing business online - and in the minds of its customers. Because virtually anyone can create a website and offer products for sale online, customers may wonder why they should trust their website. Whether your site accepts online payments or collect customer information through forms, take steps to show your visitors that your site is legitimate and safe is vital to the success of your business.

Yeah, I switched from Plesk, too, somewhere in the neighborhood of 7 years ago, after being a Plesk gold partner. I know what you mean.

Note for the future that if you ask anything which we'll be able to better help you with after testing, please use the real information.

As you know that SSL technology works through a private key which encrypts the data before sending it across internet. SSL is supported by all browsers and URLs using SSL connection begin with https: rather than usual http:. Getting a cheap SSL is not difficult as there are many certifying authorities selling them at affordable rates. A website obtains a SSL certificate once its identity is established by a certifying authority. When your site is authenticated, SSL certificate would encrypt all data typed onto the website for being sent to the server.

SSL (Secure Electrical sockets Layer) is a method developed to allow programs to give details back and forth safely. Applications that use the Protected Electrical sockets Part method naturally know how to give and get security important factors with other programs, as well as how to defend and decrypt details sent between the two.

Once installed, an SSL certificate serves as an electronic “passport” that establishes an online entity’s credentials when doing business on the Web. When an Internet user attempts to send confidential information to a Web server, the user’s browser accesses the server’s digital certificate and establishes the secure connection.

When installed SSL Certificates on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol (over port 443) and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser.
