Article Body:
The seamless world of the Internet has broken open the physical barriers
that existed across regions on the Globe. Today, therefore, you could be
sitting in Munich and buying goodies from Seoul. Very convenient, and
thrilling. But, when you pay for your goodies and swipe you’re Credit
Card, are you sure, you are paying only for what you paid for? Chances
are your Credit Card Information traverses through alien territory into
the wrong pair of hands. The result, the next morning, you will find your
Bank account eroded or emptied? Not a situation that most of us can
afford or enjoy.

How do we then transact on the Internet and yet safeguard our hard earned
monies from those Electronic pirates? The answer is relatively simple.
Every time you choose to buy product or services through web-sites,
before entering your Credit Card and other personal information look for
information on whether the payment gateway is secured. Informed customers
would always prefer to transact their business through secure sites and
this will automatically bring in more business to Websites secured
through SSL certificates from well known providers.


Payment gateways are secured through SSL or Secured Socket Layer. When
you enter your personal and or Credit Card information into a secure
site, an encrypted public key is created. This is termed as a handshake
to authenticate safe transaction. The unique encryption method which gets
established in the process will have a unique session key. This process
protects theft of valuable data and only the transaction that you intend
to complete is processed.

SSL certification has been found to   be very reliable across, Internet
users and also among the customers.   These certificates are issued by a
reliable and trusted authority, the   Certificate Authority. The web-site
through which you are attempting to   transact business carries signs of
the agency which has issued the SSL   certificates. There are other similar
agencies too, which offer these SSL certifications. When you click on the
sign, the details of the certifying agency are displayed.

When you click on such secured domains, your system generates a SSL
handshake which is accessed by the web-site server. The unique encryption
method employed then allows a secure transaction to go through.

Why all this bother?

When you are transacting valuable business or even sending across
precious data, it is necessary to route them through secure servers which
have the seal of security such as an SSL certificate. In the absence of
this Security, it would compare with sending a snail mail in a
transparent envelope.

For E-Commerce and other Web-site owners, the SSL certification acts as a
stamp of credibility and assurance of safety to their valuable customers.

For the Service Providers and other Vendors/Merchants in the Internet
world, exhibiting their site security sign – a reputed one at that, not
only assures the customer that the information he parts with will be
securely handled, but also separates them from the crowd. Informed
customers would always prefer to transact their business through secure
sites and this will automatically bring in more business to Websites
secured through SSL certificates from well known providers.
