SSL Certificates

What is an SSL certificate?

SSL Certificates are data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details. It is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer and logins, and more recently is becoming the base when securing browsing of social media sites. SSL Certificates bind together:

  • A domain name, server name or hostname.
  • An organizational identity (i.e. company name) and location.

Companies need to install the SSL Certificate into its web server to initiate secure sessions with browsers. Once a secure connection is established, all web traffic between the web server and the web browser will be secure. Browsers tell visitors a website is SSL secure, and visitors then feel the trust and confidence in using the sercure websites and feel comofrt in registering their credit card information.
