What is an SSL certificate?
An SSL certificate is a digital certificate
that authenticates the identity of a Web site to visiting browsers and encrypts
information for the server via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Encryption
is the process of scrambling data into an undecipherable format ciphertext ,
which can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key.
A certificate serves as an electronic "passport" that establishes an online
entity's credentials when doing business on the Web. When an Internet user
attempts to send confidential information to a Web server, the user's browser
will access the server's digital certificate and establish a secure connection.
How does an SSL certificate work?
An SSL certificate enables safe, easy and convenient Internet shopping. Once
an Internet user enters a secure area by entering credit card information,
e-mail address or other personal data, WaterAnywhere's SSL certificate enables
the browser and Web server to build a secure, encrypted connection. A
"padlock" icon in the browser's status bar and the "https://" prefix in the URL
are the visible indications of a secure session in progress.
