Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificates

When a browser operates in secure mode, the information that is being transferred is encrypted. Encryption prevents anyone except the actual sender or receiver and the server from viewing the information. This involves a process called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). To ensure the SSL connection is made to the intended server, certificates are used.
