What is SSL ?
Secure Sockets Layer, SSL, is the
standard security technology for creating an encrypted link between a web server
and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and
browser remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by

customers. In order to be able to generate an SSL link (https),
a web server requires an SSL Certificate and when installed, can be used
to create secure links to protect transactions, passwords, personal details,
etc. When you have a secure connection you will also see that a the URL changes
from http:// to https:// and a small gold padlock has appeared in the status bar
of your browser.
