SSL encryption of your data when it is transmitted over the internet is very important to your information security and protection of your privacy. We use a dedicated SSL certificate from a renowned SSL encryption leader in the industry.
SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, an encryption technology that was created by Netscape to ensure secure transactions between web servers and browsers. The protocol uses a third party, a Certificate Authority (CA), to identify one end or both end of the transactions. Web servers and Web browsers rely on the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to create a uniquely encrypted channel for private communications over the public Internet. Each SSL Certificate consists of a public key and a private key. The public key is used to encrypt information and the private key is used to decipher it. When a Web browser points to a secured domain, a level of encryption is established based on the type of SSL Certificate as well as the client Web browser, operating system and host server's capabilities.
Trust of a credential depends on confidence in the credential issuer, because the issuer vouches for the credential's authenticity. Certificate Authorities use a variety of authentication methods to verify information provided by organizations. An SSL certificate enables encryption of sensitive information during the transactions over the internet. Each SSL certificate is a unique credential indentifying the certificate owner. A certificate authority authenticates the identity of the certificate owner before it is issues. This is in short how it works:
When you are transmitting sensitive information on a web site, such as credit card numbers or personal information, you need to work with a secure shopping website that has SSL encryption. It is possible for every piece of data to be seen by others unless it is secured by an SSL certificate. According to Gartner Research, nearly 70 percent of online shoppers have terminated an online order because they did not "trust" the transaction. In those cases, 64 percent indicated that the presence of a trust mark would have likely prevented the termination.
