What is SSL(Secure socket layer) ?

Main function of SSL(secure socket layer) is to provide secure communication between client and webserver. In normal case without communication all data transfer b/w a user using a website is remain unencrypted.

So anyone can intercept those packets and extract information. This information will include credit card details and personal information. So it is very necessary to use encrypted communication b/w user and web server.

How do we Know data transmitted over a network is secure?


Every users using internet is need to know that most of the data transmitted over the network is not secure and can hijacked by anyone. So how we do we know which websites is secure or having ssl security. Well there is a simple solution for this, look at the url of the website if it is https then we can make sure that the data transmitted is secure.

What is a website?


Website in simple words the way of sharing information through internet,which allows to share information much faster and wider than all over the world other than any other medium.first go throgth some definitions,

Wikipedia :” A location connected to the Internet that maintains one or more pages on the World Wide Web”

This simple defnision provides most of the information needed,When explain simply the document shared through the internet.When we share something it is viewed by many users using diffident software,so we need a stranded language which accepted by world over also capable of work with wide variety of platforms.that standardized language is called HTML or hyper text markup language.

Hyper test markup language

Hyper text markup language or html is the language used for sending formatted information over internet.Which allows us o use different data types including text’s,images and also videos.HTML also provide option for collecting information through internet. Hyper Text Markup Language is a markup language that web browsers use to interpret and compose text, images and other material into visual or audible web pages. Default characteristics for every item of HTML markup are defined in the browser, and these characteristics can be altered or enhanced by the web page designer’s additional use of CSS. Many of the text elements are found in the 1988 ISO technical report TR 9537 Techniques for using SGML, which in turn covers the features of early text formatting languages such as that used by the RUNOFF command developed in the early 1960s for the CTSS (Compatible Time-Sharing System) operating system: these formatting commands were derived from the commands used by typesetters to manually format documents. However, the SGML concept of generalized markup is based on elements (nested annotated ranges with attributes) rather than merely print effects, with also the separation of structure and processing; HTML has been progressively moved in this direction with CSS.
