SSL & Encryption
HawksBooster.com uses SSL Encryption.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their visitors.
To be able to create an SSL connection a web server requires an SSL Certificate. To activate an SSL on a web server the company will be prompted to complete a number of questions about the identity of the website and the company. A web server then creates two cryptographic keys – a Private Key and a Public Key.
The Public Key does not need to be secret and is placed into a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) – a data file also containing specific details about the company. During the SSL Certificate application process, the Certification Authority will validate the details and issue an SSL Certificate containing specific details and allowing the use of a SSL. Your web server will match your issued SSL Certificate to your Private Key. Your web server will then be able to establish an encrypted link between the website and your visitor’s web browser.
The complexities of the SSL protocol remain invisible to visitors. Instead browsers provide a key indicator to determine the session is currently protected by a SSL encrypted session – the lock icon in the lower right-hand corner or the green lock in the browser address, is a link to the SSL Certificate and the details about it. To view these details, simply click the lock. All SSL Certificates are issued to either companies or legally accountable individuals.
Typically a SSL Certificate will contain a domain name, a company name, the expiration date of the Certificate and details of the Certification Authority responsible for the issuance of the Certificate. When a browser connects to a secure site it will retrieve the site’s SSL Certificate and check:
1. The SSL is active and has not expired
2. The SSL has been issued by a Certification Authority
3. The SSL match the website that is being visited
If the check fails on any one of these items above, the browser will display a warning to the visitor letting him/her know that the site is not secured by SSL.
