TLA Series: What is SSL?

 

by John Stucky

Welcome back to our TLA series. TLA stands for Three Letter Acronyms, and this is our effort to help explain what they mean. Today we are covering SSL.

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer.   SSL are secured cryptography sockets that enable information to be encrypted while communicating across a network.  It is most commonly seen on the internet today in eCommerce and other secure solutions.  You can tell you are using an SSL connection by the web address – HTTP is not secure while HTTPS is.  You should only provide private data such as a username, password or credit card information over a secured connection.

If you would like more information or have any additional questions, drop us a line, and we will help in any way we can.  Thanks for watching.
