What is SSL?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that helps provide secure Internet communications for services like web browsing, e-mail, instant messaging, and other data transfers. When you use SSL, your information is encrypted so it can’t be read by any intermediary party such as employers and internet service providers (ISPs).
