SSL Certificates

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, is commonly used on e-commerce sites and pages that require users to submit personal or credit card information. Although SSL was replaced by an updated protocol called TLS (Transport Layer Security) some time ago, SSL is still a commonly used term for this technology.

An SSL certificate is necessary to create SSL connection. Information about the identity of your website and your company is required as and when you choose to activate SSL on your web server. Once activated, two cryptographic keys are created - a Private Key and a Public Key.

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer – it is a standard security protocol for establishing encrypted links between a web server and a browser in any online communication.

The usage of SSL ensures that all data transmitted between the web server and browser remains encrypted.

What Is An SSL Certificate?

An SSL certificate is a type of digital certificate that provides authentication for a website and enables an encrypted connection. These certificates communicate to the client that the web service host demonstrated ownership of the domain to the certificate authority – CA at the time of certificate issuance.

This authentication process is much like sealing a letter in an envelope before sending it through the mail.

Although SSL was replaced by an updated protocol called TLS (Transport Layer Security) some time ago, SSL is still a commonly used term for this technology.

By ensuring that all data passed between the two parties remains private and secure, SSL encryption can help prevent hackers from stealing private information such as credit card numbers, bank information, names and addresses.

SSL certificates create trust with users by verifying that websites used to track finances and make online purchases are secure, protected and legitimate.

How does SSL / TLS work?

These are the essential principles for understanding how SSL/TLS works:

  • Secure communication begins with a TLS handshake, in which the two communicating parties open a secure connection and exchange the public key.
  • During the TLS handshake, the two parties generate session keys and the session keys encrypt and decrypt all communications after the TLS handshake.
  • Different session keys are used to encrypt communications in each new session.
  • TLS ensures that the party on the server side, or the website the user is interacting with is actually who they claim to be.
  • TLS also ensures that data has not been altered or modified since a Message Authentication Code – MAC is included with transmissions.

With TLS – both HTTPS data that users send to a website and the HTTPS data that websites send to users is encrypted. Encrypted data has to be decrypted by the recipient using a key.

Why do you need an SSL certificate?

An SSL certificate ensures that the provider is who they claim to be and also indicates secure connections between personal devices and websites.

Understanding SSL certificates is important for website trust and to help protect customers from becoming a victim to scammers. It is smart to keep in mind that not all websites or SSL certificates are created equal.

An SSL certificate helps secure information such as:

✓  Login credentials.

✓  Credit card transactions or bank account information.

✓  Personally identifiable information — such as full name, address, date of birth or telephone number.

✓  Proprietary information.

✓  Legal documents and contracts.

✓  Medical records.

Who Issues SSL Certificates?

The Certificate Authority or Certification Authority – CA is the governing body who issues the SSL Certificates digitally.

Website owners purchase SSL certificates through Certification Authorities or Trusted Third Party – TTP who have been approved by CA. CAs and / or TTPs are trusted entities that manage and issue security certificates and public keys that are used for communication in a public network who will authenticate both ends of the transaction.

An SSL certificate binds together a domain name, hostname and server name along with the organisational identity and location.

TTP & CA SSL-TLS Certificate Providers

What Is a Certificate Issuing Authority?

In cryptography, a certificate authority or certification authority (CA) or Trusted Third Party (TTP) who have been approved by CA are entities that issues digital certificates. A digital certificate certifies the ownership of a public key by the named subject of the certificate.

This allows others (relying parties) to rely upon signatures or on assertions made about the private key that corresponds to the certified public key.

A CA acts as a trusted third party – TTP —trusted both by the subject (owner) of the certificate and by the party relying upon the certificate.

One common use for certificate authorities is to sign certificates used in HTTPS, the secure browsing protocol for the World Wide Web – www.

Another common use is in issuing identity cards by national governments for use in electronically signing documents.

the different types of SSL / TLS certificates

Website owners purchase SSL certificates through Certification Authorities – CA or Trusted Third Party – TTP who have been approved by the CA. These  CAs or TTPs are trusted entities that manage and issue security certificates and public keys that are used for communication in a public network.

There are many different types of SSL certificates based on the number of domain names or subdomains owned such as:

Single Domain SSL Certificates

This secures a single domain (both www and non-www variations) encrypting all communication exchanged between your server and your visitors.

Multi-Domain SSL Certificates

Easily secure multiple domains, sub-domains, external IP addresses and other environments on a single certificate throughout its entire lifecycle.

Wildcard SSL Certificates

Wildcard SSL certificates do it all at once for one domain name and unlimited number of sub-domains.

and the level of validation needed such as:

Domain Validation - DV SSL Certificates

Domain Validated are the most basic SSL certificates with the lowest level of assurance. They are usually issued within minutes and you only need to verify that you own the domain.

DV Certificates are suitable for individual bloggers and website owners who do not rely on interaction from consumers. Consumers do not have to enter any personal details in your website either for payments or logging in.

This level is the least expensive and covers basic encryption and verification of the ownership of the domain name registration. This type of certificate usually takes a few minutes to several hours to receive.

Organisation Validation - OV SSL Certificates

OV Certificates are perfect for business owners who do not need their customers or viewers to enter sensitive payment details into their website. It is also suitable for businesses that want to maintain tight control over who is allowed to issue certificates on their site.

In addition to basic encryption and verification of ownership of the domain name registration, certain details of the business name and address are authenticated. This type of certificate usually takes a few hours to several days to receive.

Extended Validation - EV SSL Certificates

Extended Validated certificates provide the highest level of trust and assurance. Consumers and viewers inherently trust this more because they know just who they are dealing with. 

EV certificates are perfect for E-Commerce platform website owners. Your customers are far more likely to provide their payment or address details if you have the green padlock sign in your browser. 67.9% more individuals feel safe conducting business with a site using an EV certificate as represented by the green browser and company name. 

In addition to ownership of the domain name registration and entity authentication, the legal, physical and operational existence of the entity is verified. This type of certificate usually takes a few days to several weeks to receive.
