Protect transactions and customer data with a SSL Certificate
SSL certificates can make all the difference in terms of website security. More and more business websites are going to be using them these days. When it comes to websites that accept credit cards, SSL certificates can mean the difference between those customers feeling safe and being safe and those customers having some information lost or stolen. Customers are going to feel safe, and they are going to genuinely be safer if they have the benefits associated with either Standard SSL or Premium SSL.
Help Repeat Business
People can manage to get credit cards safely accepted thanks to all of these SSL certificates. Businesses who want to be able to sell to a large audience are going to need to make sure that they have all of these features, or they are never going to be able to make the profits that they really want. Customers are going to know if certain businesses have these certificates or not, and this is going to make a difference when it comes to whether they are going to do any repeat business with these customers or whether or not they have any plans of showing these businesses to other people.
Keeping Sensitive Information Safely
People care greatly about how safe and secure a given business is these days. If a Premium SSL or Standard SSL certificate is in place, it is going to be that much easier for customers to feel that they have truly come to the right place in more ways than one. The data that customers will send is going to get encrypted once it is sent initially and then it is de-crypted in order to make it readable on the other side. As such, all of the data is going to be safe and people are going to be able to use their sensitive information safely.
Public key SSL Certificate How It Work
In cryptography, a public key certificate (also known as a digital certificate or identity certificate) is an electronic document used to prove the ownership of a public key. The certificate includes information about the key, information about its owner’s identity, and the digital signature of an entity that has verified the certificate’s contents are correct. If the signature is valid, and the person examining the certificate trusts the signer, then they know they can use that key to communicate with its owner.
In a typical public-key infrastructure (PKI) scheme, the signer is a certificate authority (CA), usually a company that charges customers to issue certificates for them. In a web of trust scheme, the signer is either the key’s owner (a self-signed certificate) or other users (“endorsements”) whom the person examining the certificate might know and trust.
Certificates are an important component of Transport Layer Security (TLS, sometimes called by its older name SSL, Secure Sockets Layer), where they prevent an attacker from impersonating a secure website or other server. They are also used in other important applications, such as email encryption and code signing.
