What is an SSL protocol?
An SSL protocol is a protocol for the exchange of information that enables the authentication, confidentiality and integrity of the data transmitted over the Internet.
In order for the information contained on a website to be protected under the SSL protocol, a security certificate must be installed on this domain. The data contained in this security certificate enables the encryption of the exchanged information and the certification of the owner of the information. These two techniques are the foundations on which the function of the SSL protocol is based.
Currently the SSL protocol is the most widely used medium to guarantee this information exchange. If you are browsing Internet sites with SSL-protected websites, you can see that a key or a padlock symbol appears in the browser at the bottom of the screen. The same goes for Mozilla Firefox or Safari in the navigation bar. If you double-click on the data of the certificate.
The access to a website via SSL protocol is displayed in the browser as https://, eg: https://www.MyAngel.at
