    SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remain private.

    When you land on a website page that has a form, after that form is filled-in and you hit 'submit', the information you just entered can be intercepted by a hacker on an unsecure website. To protect your important data from hackers, you need to use SSL. When you visit a website that's encrypted with SSL, your browser will form a connection with the webserver, look at the SSL certificate, and then bind together your browser and the server. This binding connection is secure so that no one besides you and the website you're submitting the information to can see or access your information.

    For in depth study regarding SSL you can study a very good guide “A Beginner's Guide to SSL: What It Is & Why It Makes Your Website More Secure” written by Jeffrey Vocell.

    SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, is an encryption-based Internet security protocol. It was first developed by Netscape in 1995 for the purpose of ensuring privacy, authentication, and data integrity in Internet communications. SSL is the predecessor to the modern TLS encryption used today.

    SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)
    SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, is an encryption-based Internet security protocol. SSL certificates create a foundation of trust by establishing a secure connection. To assure visitors their connection is secure, browsers provide special visual cues that we call EV indicators -- anything from a green padlock to branded URL bar.
