Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology protects your website and makes it easy for your website visitors to trust you in three essential ways:
You need SSL if...
How Encryption Works
Imagine sending a letter through the post in a transparent envelope. Anyone with access to it can see the data. If it looks valuable, they might take it or change it. An SSL Certificate establishes a private communication channel enabling encryption of the data during transmission. Encryption scrambles the data, essentially creating an envelope for message privacy.
Each SSL Certificate consists of a public key and a private key. The public key is used to encrypt information and the private key is used to decipher it. When a Web browser points to a secured domain, a Secure Sockets Layer handshake authenticates the server (website) and the client (Web browser). An encryption method is established with a unique session key and secure transmission can begin. True 256-bit SSL Certificates enable every site visitor to experience the strongest SSL encryption available to them.
How Authentication Works
Imagine receiving an envelope with no return address and a form asking for your bank account number. Every SSL Certificate is created for a particular server in a specific domain for a verified business entity. When the SSL handshake occurs, the browser requires authentication information from the server. By clicking the closed padlock in the browser window or certain SSL trust marks, the website visitor sees the authenticated organisation name. In high-security browsers, the authenticated organisation name is prominently displayed and the address bar turns green when an Extended Validation SSL Certificate is detected. If the information does not match or the certificate has expired, the browser displays an error message or warning.
Why Authentication Matters
Like a passport or a driving licence, an SSL Certificate is issued by a trusted source, known as the Certificate Authority (CA). Many CAs simply verify the domain name and issue the certificate. Our chosen supplier, Comodo verifies the existence of your business, the ownership of your domain name and your authority to apply for the certificate, a higher standard of authentication.
