New Article @ LWD: An introduction to SSL Certificates
Posted on Monday, March 01 @ 19:51:12 PST by Fido

We have just published a new article titled An introduction to SSL Certificates. This article covers in great detail what SSL Certificates are, how they are used, and how they are issued and trusted. So, if you've ever been curious about SSL Certificates, or just wanted to learn more about them to better protect yourself from the "bad people out there", make sure you check it out!

It all comes down to trust, authenticity and integrity. If I'm using a secure web site - say, when doing my banking online - then I want to know that the connection used is genuinely secure from tampering, or even impersonation. The certificate presented by my bank to my web browser is how the bank assures me of its compliance with those conditions. I then choose whether or not to trust my bank's assurances by checking who has vouched for my bank and deciding whether or not I trust them - and also anyone who has vouched for them further up the chain - in turn.
