SSL Certificates: 101

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates guarantee the authenticity of a website through a specific validation process executed by a certification authority. In detail, SSL Certificates are small data files that bind a cryptographic key to your companies’ details. When SSL is installed on a webserver, it activates the padlock and the https protocol. This allows secure connections from a webserver to a browser, and for that reason, SSL is typically used to secure credit card transactions, logins and data transfer. Today, it’s also becoming the standard when securing browsing of different social media sites.

This is rather heavy reading, so in short, SSL Certificates bind together:

  • A domain name, hostname or server name.
  • An organizational identity and location.

SSL Certificates and their management at BRANDIT
