SSL Encryption

Educating yourself about the many methods that may be used by security conscious companies to safeguard consumer data online is the first step.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) are cryptographic protocols designed to provide improved security and data integrity for digital communications over modern networks including the internet. TLS and SSL encryption protects information being transported by preventing it from being intercepted by anyone who is not intended to receive the transmission. There are several continuingly evolving versions of these protocols in widespread use online. Applications like web browsers, email, instant messaging software and voice-over-IP (VoIP) services all use encryption in varying degrees to protect users from privacy breaches, identity theft, financial malfeasance and character harm.
