What is SSL?
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. SSL is the de facto standard for
creating a secure, encrypted link between a Web server and a browser, thus
securing safe passage of sensitive information, such as credit card numbers.
E-commerce Web sites, banks, etc. use SSL as a means to protect online
transactions with their customers. Once a secure connection is established,
SSL encrypts information sent from your browser to the Web server.
