What is an SSL Certificate?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) are cryptographic protocols that provide communication security over a computer network. Several versions of the protocols find widespread use in application such as web browsing, email, Internet faxing, instant messaging, and voice-over-IP (VoIP). Websites are able to use TLS (Transport Layer Security) to secure all communications between their servers and web browsers.

SSL Provides Authentication

In addition to encryption, a proper SSL certificate also provides authentication. This means you can be sure that you are sending information to the right server and not to an imposter trying to steal your information. Any of these computers could be posing as a legitimate website and trick users into sending them personal information. It is only possible to avoid this by using a proper Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), and getting an SSL Certificate from a trusted SSL provider.

Why are SSL providers important?

Trusted SSL providers will only issue an SSL certificate to a verified company that has gone through several identity checks. Certain types of SSL certificates, like EV SSL Certificates, require more validation than others.

How do you know if an SSL provider is trusted?

Web browser manufactures verify that SSL providers are following specific practices and have been audited by a third=party using a standard such as WebTrust.
