What is SSL / TLS?

Let’s start with the basics. SSL / TLS certificate performs two main functions.

1. Data Encryption

2. Authentication



What is data encryption?



When a client and a web server exchange data, this information is usually transmitted over an unsecured channel and can be intercepted and changed by a third party. Of course, we would not want this if we are talking about private data. SSL / TLS certificate allows you to encrypt a connection in which all data transmitted between the client and the server is encoded so that only the authorized party can read it. It protects personal data and confidential information shared by both parties.







What is authentication?

It all starts with an interaction known as SSL handshake, which in milliseconds helps to encrypt the connection and protects all communication between your site and its visitors.
