information sent over the Internet are normally unencrypted
and can be intercepted at any point. Since sensitive information
must sometimes be relayed over the Net, there is a need
to make these pieces of information "unreadable" to other
parties. Secure Socket Layer or SSL encryption solves this
will know you have entered a secure page (a page protected
by SSL) if its URL begins with 'https://'. When your
browser comes across such a page, the server (or the host
of the secure page) and the client (your PC) exchange messages,
with the server identifying itself. This procedure is called
the SSL Handshake and marks the beginning of each SSL session.
This handshake ensures that the client and the server are
in direct communication with one another. Once it is determined
that they are in direct communication with one another,
both server and client create unique keys for encrypting
and decrypting information. These keys also make sure that
a third party is not tampering with the information sent
and received during the session.
the handshake is over, the server and client use the generated
keys to encrypt and decrypt data that they send to one another.
Should a third party monitor or try to intercept the data
being transmitted, only undecipherable messages will be
the session ends or when you exit the secure page, the shared
encryption and decryption keys are lost because these keys
are unique to the SSL session that generate them. If you
try going back to the secure page, the keys are not be retrieved
but a new SSL session begins, thus generating a new set
of keys for encryption and decryption.
transactions are very safe if they are protected by SSL
encryption. Most encryption and decryption keys vary in
length from 40 to 1024 digits long. And the longer the key
is, the harder it is to crack. Moreover, SSL transactions
are protected with a mechanism that can detect whether the
data has been altered in transit or not.
