What is an SSL Certificate?

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer; as described in name, it is a security layer protocol that is used to encrypt the sensitive data of your website and protect it from spammers and hackers. When you install an SSL certificate on your website, your HTTP protocol will convert into the HTTPS protocol which signals that your website is secure for online transactions, and secures your sensitive data. You can buy an SSL certificate from a web hosting company like Web4Africa.
When your SSL certificate is issued by an SSL certificate authority, and you make your domain move from HTTP to HTTPS, your SSL certificate will display some public information like:

  • Certificate Information: the information contains the purpose(s) of the certificate.
  • Issued to: contains the certificate holder company or domain name
  • Issued by: contains the certificate issuing company, certification authority
  • Valid From: contains the issuing date to expiry date of your SSL certificate
  • Details: contains the SSL certificate version, serial number, Signature hash algorithm, Issuer Company,
    public key parameters, etc.
  • Certification Path: displays the path of a certificate issued

How does an SSL Certificate work?

When a user request server to access your domain URL and if you have installed an SSL certificate properly, the browser asks the domain to identify the user. At that point, the process of SSL handshake will be performed by the website, in this process the website will send a copy of the SSL certificate and website’s public key, and then the browser will check the few details like the certificate is from a valid Certificate Authority (CA), not expired, not revoked, and valid for the particular website.
If the process successfully completed, then the browser will create, encrypt and send a symmetric key by using the website’s public key, after that the website will decrypt the data and send an acknowledgement to start the encryption session.
