SSL Overview


Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is one of the most common security protocols used on the Internet today. If you’ve clicked onto a website and noticed a green address bar, or a padlock icon on the address bar, then you have seen a site that has a SSL Certificate. SSL Certified sites display their URL as https, whilst unprotected sites show as http.

SSL is used to encrypt sensitive, private data, such as credit card numbers, or bank account details, which are sent from a visitor’s browser to your web server. Normally, data on the web is sent in clear text from computer to computer until its destination is reached. Any of the computers along the way can see that information, and this is where the gap is presented to cyber attackers who are looking for soft targets to exploit.

Online shoppers are generally technologically savvy and are mindful of online security. They want to know that their confidential information is being kept safe. Using an SSL Certificate suggests that you are concerned about your customer’s online safety, and that you are providing them with some assurance that their private information is not going to be misused.
