    SSL is the standard for establishing an encrypted connection between a web browser and a web server. The encrypted connection uses cryptography to obscure the data being sent between the two parties, so that the data remains private and untampered with. SSL is the only widely deployed solution for encrypting information in transit and is the result of years of collaboration between industry leaders. SSL is used by millions of people every day to secure website connections.

    Basically SSL certificates encrypt the data that goes from your computer to the target website and back:

    your browser connects server (your target website) on a SSL port;
    server sends back its public key;the client(your browser) decides if itís ok to proceed - it checks if the public key isnít expired, and if it is verified or "signed" by a trusted third party Certificate Authority, whose job is to verify server application for a digital SSL certificate;
    if the client decides to trust the certificate, it sends his public key to the server;
    then the server creates the encrypted message, using clientís public key and serverís private key, and send the message back to the browser;
    clientís browser decrypts the message;

    The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) is the most widely deployed security protocol used today.
