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.
SSL Certificates Have Various Applications
SSL certificates aren’t just for web browsers, they can be used in a multitude of ways in an IT infrastructure such as:
- Encrypting virtual private networks (SSL VPN).
- Establishing a secure identity of a computer (such as certificate authentication for accessing a wireless network).
- Allow users secure remote access such as an encrypted remote desktop (RDP) session.
