What does the SSL do …??
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
Why SSL is required ..??
Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate. When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to. You can buy SSL certificate from you website hosting provider
Is SSL really secure ..??
SSL does not provide any security once the data is on the server. It is still necessary to use hashing and server side encryption if you want to protect the data at rest from breaches to the server itself. HTTPS is HTTP sent over an SSL encrypted connection. SSL only secures the connection between client and server.
SSL installation requires number of steps to be carried out from back end.
