SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security protocol for establishing an encrypted connection between a web server and a browser. This technology ensures that data exchange remains private, i.e. cannot be intercepted by a third-party. Such protection is essential when transferring confidential information like credit card transactions, login credentials, etc.
SSL encrypts the data with the help of two keys – public (can be known to everyone) and private (known to the recipient of the transmissible message only) ones. When configured on a web server, SSL allows using HTTPS protocol (over the 443 port) instead of the default HTTP one to access its content.
To establish an SSL connection, a web server requires an SSL Certificate to be installed, which digitally binds a cryptographic key to a holder’s details and site hostname. Usually, such a certificate needs to be verified by a trusted authority (or check out the Self-Signed SSL), which makes it reliable and ensures that any connection to your site or application is performed without issues.
