What is an SSL Certificate?

what is an SSL certificate

Building a trustworthy environment where potential customers feel they can shop safely is an essential element of online business. SSL certificates are the foundation of this trust because they create a secure connection.

Customarily, browsers add EV indicators and graphic symbols such as a green padlock or a URL bar with branded features to reassure visitors that the connection is secure.

SSL certificates have a pair of keys, one public and one private, that together establish an encrypted connection. The certificate also contains the so-called "subject," which is the identity of the certificate's owner or site.

We can create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) on the server to generate a new certificate.

Once you have collected your SSL certificate, you must install it on your server, along with an intermediate certificate, which establishes the credibility of your SSL Certificate by tying it to your CA's root certificate.

What is a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)?

importance of a SSL

It is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted connection between a server and a client, usually a Web server and a browser or an e-mail server and client software (e.g., Outlook).

SSL enables the secure transmission of sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials. Usually, the data exchange between browsers and Web servers would be in text files, but these can be hacked easily. An attacker who can intercept all data sent between a browser and a web server will be able to view and use this information.

An attacker who can intercept all data sent between a browser and a web server will be able to view and use this information.

To be more precise, SSL is a security protocol describing how to use specific algorithms. In this case, the SSL protocol determines the variables to encrypt the connection and data in transit.

All browsers are designed to interact with secure web servers using the SSL protocol. However, the browser and server need an SSL certificate to establish a secure connection.

SSL protocols protect the data of millions of people on the Internet every day, especially for online transactions or transmissions of confidential information. Internet users today know that the presence of a padlock signals an SSL-protected website, just as a green address bar indicates that the site has SSL protection with Extended Validation. These secure sites also are preceded by the abbreviation "HTTPS" instead of just "HTTP."

Every website should have an SSL protocol, from small blogs to platforms offering services that require special trust, such as eCommerce or online casinos.

With the HTTPS protocol, you secure once and for all the data of customers who, you can be sure, will know how to be grateful by repaying you with trust.

And speaking of trust, we must always be careful with the eCommerce sites we decide to buy from because sometimes they could be scams. And the same goes for online casinos. Your security and that of your funds should be your top priority. Of course, getting right into the casino bonuses and offers is tempting, but ensure you've checked the site's safety measures first.

There are countless platforms to find the best online casinos provided with an SSL protocol and licensed by a reputable gambling authority, so why risk it? Not only does the platform secure gamers' safety, but it also provides them with the information they need to make more informed decisions.

Secure Connection: How to Get it With an SSL Certificate

When a browser tries to access an SSL-protected website, the browser and server establish an SSL connection with a process called an "SSL Handshake" (see diagram below). The SSL handshake is invisible to the user and occurs instantaneously.

We use three keys to establish the SSL connection: a public, a private, and a session key.

Since encryption and decryption operations with the private and public keys absorb a lot of processing power, they are used only during the handshake phase to create a symmetric session key. Once the secure connection is established, all transmitted data will be encrypted with the session key.
