We are using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol on our servers. By using SSL Protocols,
your information is encrypted so that no one else can read it while it is being
entered and stored on our servers.
SSL protocol is currently the most widely used method for
performing secure transactions on the Web, and is supported by most Web servers
and clients including Netscape® Navigator and Microsoft® Internet Explorer. The SSL protocol provides several features that make it particularly
suitable for use in e-commerce transactions.
Privacy is guaranteed through encryption. Although information can still be intercepted
by a third party, they will be unable to read it as they have no access to the encryption
Integrity is also ensured through encryption. If information is received that will
not decrypt properly, then the recipient knows that the information has been tampered
with during transmission.
Authentication is provided through digital certificates. Digital certificates provide
the basis for secure electronic transactions as they enable all participants in
a transaction to quickly and easily verify the identity of the other participants.
Essentially, SSL is secret-key encryption nested within public-key encryption, authenticated
through the use of certificates.
The reason that both secret-key and public-key encryption methods are used is because
of the relatively slow speed of public-key encryption compared to secret-key encryption.
Initially, the client and server exchange public keys, and then the client will
generate a private encryption key that is used only for this transaction. This is
referred to as a session key. The client then encrypts the session key with the
server's public key and sends it to the server. Then, for the rest of the transaction,
the client and the server can use the session key for private-key encryption.
