Knowledge Base



SSL which means Secure Sockets Layer is an internet protocol that provides security over the net by establishing an encrypted link between a browser and a web server. All the data exchanged between the web server and the browser is encrypted. 

  • When a client goes to a secured website, the server shares the public key with the client and sends a copy of the SSL certificate
  • The client confirms that he trusts the issuer of the SSL certificate. 
  • From this moment, there is a secure connection that protects message integrity. 

 To implement a SSL connection, you need an encryption key provided by a Certification Authority

 The web server will create 2 keys: a Public and a Private key. The CSR is a document that contains all your details and information. 

 Depending on the type of SSL Certificate chosen, it will involve different levels of vetting

 Once a secured connection is established, you can view your SSL Certificate by clicking on the padlock and get all information about the company and its website.
