What is SSL?

SSL is short for secure socket layer - a technology that encrypts communication between users and a website. This encryption ensures that important data such as usernames, passwords, and credit card information is sent from the user to the site without the risk of interception. An SSL certificate is a certified piece of code on a website that binds this encryption to the organization responsible for the website.

An SSL-certified website runs on https protocol. This activates the browser padlock or a prominent green browser bar to show visitors it is safe to browse. Reputable websites use SSL to protect their customer’s data and their online transactions; their reputation depends on it.

SSL certificates granted by Certificate Authorities such as XperiaSol contain information about the accuracy of the of the identity of the person or company holding issuance. Visitors can check the website's identity to verify their ID simply by clicking the padlock symbol in their browser.
Each valid SSL certificate must be issued for every server and domain (website address). When you use your browser to open a website holding an SSL certificate, the SSL handshake occurs between your browser and the website server. The information request during this ‘greeting’ is then made visible to you in your browser window. You will find some changes that indicate a secure session has been initiated. A padlock, a trust mark or the website name highlighted in green are all indicators that a secure link is established and secure communications can begin.
You can easily recognize a secure connection. You can identify whether a website is protected with SSL certificate just by looking at the URL. If the URL begins with ‘https://’, it's to be understood that the website is secured with an SSL certificate. Standard web addresses begin with HTTP. In an SSL protected website, HTTP is replaced with HTTPs. The extra s indicates that it's a secure page since.
