SSL Certificate India
SSL is protocol developed by Netscape
for transmitting private documents via the Internet. SSL
works by using a private key to encrypt data that’s transferred
over the SSL connection. Both Netscape Navigator and Internet
Explorer supports SSL, and many Web sites use the protocol
to obtain confidential user information, such as credit
card numbers. By convention, URLs that require an SSL
connection start with https: instead of http:.
Who needs a SSL Certificate?
Any website that stores “sensitive” information like Credit Card numbers, personal information
about other people (like names and addresses, Identity Numbers, Passwords etc) or sensitive company information, should only acquire the data from the individual via a secure connection. Not only is a secure connection important to protect you (the website owner) from fraud, but it is also essential to protect your customers and staff from fraud as well.
Why is SSL Certificates important?
Firstly, when you enter data (including passwords, credit card numbers) over a non-secure internet connection, the data is transmitted from your PC to the destination server in plain text. The fact that your browser shows a bunch of ‘******’ for the password is simply what it shows you. Your password is still being transmitted as plain text!
How does SSL Certificate secure a website
Any data transmitted over the internet as plain text can be intercepted. It’s as simple as that. A person with malicious intentions simply has to listen to the right ports or look at the right places to read exactly what you have entered. If that data happens to be your password or your credit card number … well, you can guess what happens after that.
128-bit encryption – Cryptographers consider 128-bit encryption practically impossible to crack (it would take millions of years with the fastest computers to try all the combinations). With 128-bit encryption you can ensure that your international customer base will be able to exchange information with you using the strongest possible encryption.
