Technicals of SSL Certificates
Secure transactions between a client and server across public lines is possible with SSL certificates. The certificate allows for encryption of information. Each certificate is unique and identifies the owner of the certificate. A third party authenticates the owner. Essentially when a browser is directed to a website it requests the websites identity. The server sends back it’s certificate which is then authenticated by a third party. As long as the browser believes the authentication then a secure socket layer (SSL) encrypted session is established. The information passed between the browser and the web server is now encrypted.

To the end user, the visitor or customer, they want to know their information is secure. When a user goes to a website with a browser and a secure encrypted transmission has been established a security lock appears in the browser bar. This padlock icon lets the user know that their information is secure. It is important to know that this means the information passed between the user and business is secure, it does not necessarily mean that the information kept by the company on their servers is secure. Badges on a website can also let the user know the site is secure.
