What is SSL?

Short for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol developed by Netscape for transmitting private documents via the Internet. SSL works by using a public key to encrypt data that's transferred over the SSL connection. All major web browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, etc.) support SSL technology, and many Web sites use the protocol to safely transmit confidential information, such as credit card numbers.
