Google Forces SSL on All Business

SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer. It refers to a security technology used for creating an encrypted association between a web server and a browser. The data that passes between the web server and browsers stay private and integral due to the link created between them.

SSL is an important tool for protecting websites, even though sometimes it does not handle sensitive information. For a secure website connection, you need to acquire an SSL certificate. Should you not acquire an SSL certificate you will not be able to create an SSL connection, therefore your website will not be digitally connected to a cryptographic key.

Today Google forces companies to have secured websites. There will be a lock icon located at the lower right-hand corner that contains the details about the SSL Certificated. The information about the SSL certificate will only be displayed if you click on the icon.

The purpose of using SSL Certificates is that they provide the following:

Encrypts Sensitive Information

SSL ensures that the sensitive information sent through the internet is kept encrypted

Authentication

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is used for protection against hackers

Trust

For every visitor to know that the connection is secured, the visual cues like a lock icon or green bar should be provided by the Web browser
