SSL Certification

by annazinger In reply to Is SSL Certification for ...

SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser. Typically, SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer and logins, and more recently is becoming the norm when securing browsing of social media sites.

SSL Certificates bind together:

A domain name, server name or hostname
An organizational identity (i.e. company name) and location

An organization needs to install the SSL Certificate onto its web server to initiate a secure session with browsers. Once a secure connection is established, all web traffic between the web server and the web browser will be secure.

From a quick glance at you website, I noticed that there is an option to buy tyres online. That means you need secure credit card transactions and SSL certificates will definitely help to secure you website.

Hackers can also use SSL encrypted traffic to inject malware, viruses and other risky content, in that case you can use SSL decryption like this one

to detect such malware.
