About

SSL certificates are used to encrypt and authenticate connections to network servers, most popularly for web servers but also email, file transfers, and other network connections.

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that is used to encrypt and authenticate connections between clients and servers. Certificates are configured on the server so that the client can verify that the connection has not been hijacked, as well as verify that the connection is secure from end to end.
