This is the latest post in our Usenet Features in Depth series.
This article is all about SSL and how it protects your data, both in your browser and with usenet.
What Is SSL And Why Do We Need It?
Over the years, the Internet has attracted many entrepreneurs, business opportunities and place for people all over the world to come together. Unfortunately, words like, “cyber criminals” and “online fraud” also come with the territory. SSL encryption ensures security when personal information is exchanged such as credit cards, login passwords and any other sensitive data.
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. Originally created by Netscape to transmit private information over the Internet. Two keys are used in the encryption process, a public key and a private key that is only available to the recipient of the message. Often a small padlock symbol appears in your browser that lets you know you are using SSL encryption.
