We are upgrading our website to contain SSL certificates. With SSL enabled automatically, our visitors can access a constant, secure connection on every page of our site. Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a technology that secures the connection between the browser and the website you’re visiting.
If you see a URL beginning with https://, instead of http://, and a green, closed padlock icon this means that a website is SSL secured. There are three security benefits with SSL:
· Privacy: Encrypts the connection between the browser and web server and securely transmits information (like login credentials) to prevent unauthorized parties from eavesdropping.
· Data integrity: Prevents unauthorized parties from altering data during transmission (like during a Form Block submission).
· Authentication: Protects against impersonation by requiring web server proof of identity.
