The SSL technology or SSL protocol (secure socket layers), is a security protocol that provides a secure channel for the transit of information between two devices operating over the Internet, the most common case where you can perceive the use of SSL is to protect communications between a web browser and a server.
From a technical perspective, the SSL is used to establish a secure navigation, an HTTP protocol is not secure at all, through HTTP the data is transported as a plain text, this means that any individual or intruder who intercepts that information will have access to it. When an SSL protocol is used, it guarantees that the information is encrypted and protected against foreign agents.
To identify a website that uses SSL just look at the address bar, where the URL should be presented as HTTPS instead of HTTP. Either way Browsers like Chrome will tell us when sites are secure or alert us if they are not.
Now, how does SSL work? The SSL protocol works in a way that is compatible with the principles of information security: encryption, which protects the transmission of data between computers or servers, authentication, which ensures that we are connecting to the correct server and, finally, data integrity which guarantees that the data or information requested and/or sent is legitimate.
To obtain an SSL Security Protocol, you need to purchase an SSL certificate, which is a data file that digitally binds a cryptographic key to your company or organization's data, be it a web domain, a server or host. Once in place, the certificate will activate the padlock and the HTTPS protocol on your website, thus enabling a secure connection from the web server to the browser. It is important to know that an SSL certificate must be issued by a trusted certificate authority.
SSL certificates use a key encryption technology, making use of two keys (which are long sequences of random numbers), one of the keys will be private and the other public. To understand this imagine a subject A and a subject B, where subject B represents the website in question, remember that there are two keys, when subject A sends a message to subject B, that message will be encrypted with the public key of the site, to decrypt the message subject B, as site administrator, must make use of the private key that only he possess. Thus, if a third party intercepts the message before subject B does, all he will see is an undecipherable cryptographic code, since he does not possess the site's private key.
