SSL Certificates

  • Introduction

    What Is an SSL Certificate?

    Trusted SSL (secure socket layer) certificates allow the securing and interchange of data over an encrypted session, for example, if you do digital banking, you will see that website address starts with HTTPS and there is a padlock symbol in the browser. This shows that the connection to the browser is being secured using a certificate and that communication between the computer and the web server will be encrypted.
