What is an SSL Certificate? Print

  • 32

An SSL certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website to visiting browsers and encrypts information for the server via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.

 

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.
