Protect your Web Servers with SSL
 
HTTP communications are fine for the average Web server, which just contains informational pages. But if you’re thinking about running an e-commerce site or other Web services that require secure transactions, you need to be able to encrypt communications between your Web server and its clients. The most common means is by the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which uses public key cryptography to protect confidential user information (such as credit card or bank account numbers) that is transmitted across the Web. In this article, we’ll discuss how SSL works and show you how to enable it on your Internet Information Services (IIS) Web servers.

Secure Socket Layer
 
Security of data in transit over the Internet becomes increasingly necessary because of steadily growing data volume and importance. Nowadays, every user of a public network sends various types of data, from email to credit card details daily, and he would therefore like them to be protected when in transit over a public network. To this end, a practical SSL protocol has been adopted for protection of data in transit that encompasses all network services that use TCP/IP to support typical application tasks of communication between servers and clients.

It is commonly used to provide secure transfer of credit card information and other sensitive data in an e-commerce situation.
