Secure Server FAQ










What is a secure server?

A secure server safeguards your internet communications by requesting authentication for server access , encrypting private information and protecting the integrity of your data . While in a secure area you will see either the Netscape closed key , closed lock , or the Microsoft closed lock . These symbols indicate that all data being transmitted, such as your credit card information is strongly encrypted. The secure server extension will also be noted in your browser
address bar as https://

What does the term SSL server authentication mean?

it allows users to confirm a Web server's identity. SSL-enabled client software, such as a Web browser, can automatically check that a server's certificate and public ID are valid and have been issued by a certificate authority (CA)—such as VeriSign, Thawte—listed in the client software's list of trusted CAs. SSL server authentication is vital for secure e-commerce transactions in which, for example, users send credit card numbers over the Web and first want
to verify the receiving server's identity.

 

 

What is an encrypted SSL connection?

It requires all information sent between a client and a server to be encrypted by the sendingsoftware and decrypted by the receiving software, protecting private information from interception over the Internet. In addition, all data sent over an encrypted SSL connection is protected with a mechanism for detecting tampering—that is, for automatically determining whether the data has been altered in transit. This means that users can confidently send private data, such as credit card numbers, to a Web site, trusting that SSL keeps it private and confidential.
