- An SSL certificate provides
security by encrypting the data between the browser and the web server.
Obviously, data encryption is important for financial transactions or other
situations where websites are requesting sensitive data from visitors.
Without that SSL certificate, and the little lock icon in the browser, most
web surfers won't provide that data.
- A SSL certificate provides
identity verification, through domain and organization validation.
New Extended Validation (EV) certificates take identity validation to the
next level. Sites with an EV certificate will cause the address bar on
Firefox, Internet Explorer or other current browsers to turn green. Users
are able to view information about the website that will help them to
confirm that they are dealing with who they think they are dealing with.
Both applications of SSL Certificates are important for building the trust
relationship required before users will pass along personal, or financial
information to websites or online service providers.
Practical Applications for SSL Certificates
The perception of SSL Certificates is that they are primarily used to secure
the transmission of financial information in ecommerce. But with identity theft
on the rise and more and more businesses opening up their networks via the
Internet, protecting all types of personally identifiable information (social
security numbers, login information, etc.) and key business information is
important. SSL Certificates should be used to secure the following:
- Web servers
- Mail servers
- Web forums
- Blogging platforms
- Control panels
- Corporate intra- and extranets
- Customer portals
- and more!
