SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, is a technology that establishes an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data between the two remains private and secure. SSL is an essential part of online security and is commonly used by e-commerce websites, social media sites, and any other site that requires the exchange of sensitive information.

A web server must first obtain a digital certificate from a trusted Certificate Authority to create an SSL connection. The certificate contains information about the server, including the server’s public key. Once the server has been authenticated, the browser will create an encrypted connection using the server’s public key. Any data exchanged between the two will now be securely transmitted, protecting it from eavesdroppers. SSL is an essential part of safeguarding computing communications and helps to ensure that information exchanged online remains private and confidential.
