What exactly is SSL?
Posted by Alpha Daramy on 18 January 2008 03:22 AM

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a security protocol for exchanging information between a web site and a computer communicating with it (client). It's easy to tell when a server is using SSL security because the URL in your browser will start with https. This denotes a secure connection.
