Since its introduction in 1994, SSL has been the standard for e-commerce transaction security and it is likely to remain this way well into the future.
SSL encrypts data like credit card numbers and other private information to prevent people from stealing information for malicious and fraudulent purposes.
You know you are on an SSL protected page when the address begins with “https” and there is a padlock icon in the search bar at the top of the page.
Your browser encrypts the data and sends it to the receiving web site using either 40-bit, 128-bit or 256-bit encryption. Your browser cannot secure the whole transaction on its own and it is incumbent upon e-commerce site builders to do their part.
The SSL certificate sits on a secure server and is used to encrypt the data and to identify the web site. The SSL certificate helps to confirm that the site belongs to who it says it belongs to; it also contains information about the certificate holder, the domain the certificate was issued for, the name of the issuing Certificate Authority, the root and the country the certificate was issued in.
If you are running a legitimate e-commerce business that you want users to trust, the SSL certificate system assures users of the security and integrity of your e-commerce business. The SSL certificate reassures users of your credibility and may well be your key to e-commerce success.
