What is SSL?

John Zukowski

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It is a protocol developed by Netscape for encrypting information sent between processes over TCP/IP sockets. It sits between application software and the TCP/IP sockets. You'll find it frequently used between web browsers and web servers using the https URL prefix, providing encryption, integrity, authentication, and non-repudiation.
