SSL Certificate

An SSL certificate, or Secure Sockets Layer certificate, is a digital certificate that encrypts data transmitted between a user's web browser and a website's server. It ensures that the information exchanged, such as personal details or financial transactions, remains secure and confidential. When a website has an SSL certificate, you'll notice "https://" in the URL, and a padlock icon indicates that the connection is secure. SSL certificates are crucial for safeguarding sensitive data, building trust with users, and improving a website's search engine ranking, as search engines often prioritize secure websites in their results.

  1. Encryption
    • SSL certificates use cryptographic protocols to encrypt data during transmission. This encryption helps prevent third parties from eavesdropping on or tampering with the information exchanged between a user and a website.

  2. Data Integrity
    • SSL ensures the integrity of data by preventing it from being altered or corrupted during transit. Users can trust that the information they send or receive has not been tampered with en route.

  3. Authentication
    • SSL certificates also play a role in authenticating the identity of the website. When a website has an SSL certificate, it uses a digital signature to prove its legitimacy. This authentication helps build trust with users, assuring them that they are interacting with the intended website and not a malicious entity.
