What is a Security Certificate?
A Security Certificate is a collection of electronic documents that enable the encryption of transmitted data and identifying the source of such information.
The Security Certificate is issued by a Certification Authority, Thawte / Verisign, which certifies the origin of the information.
The possession of the Security Certificate ensures that the transferred information between you and Humboldt is confidential and is transmitted encrypted over the network. The information exchanged and the identity of the owner of the website travels encoded, allowing to do so in complete safety. It has the same security, functionality and features that online banking services.
What is SSL protocol?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a cryptographic protocol which ensures that internet communication is secure, and that information travels authenticated and privately.
The information may be protected under the SSL only if the domain where it is hosted has a Safety Certificate. The information exchanged and the owner's identity can be encoded, and thus the exchange of information is ensured in a secure framework.
The implementation of SSL on a web page is identified clearly by displaying a key or padlock. If the browser is Netscape or Internet Explorer it will appear at the bottom of the screen, and if it is Mozilla Firefox or Safari, in the navigation bar. You can access the data of the Certificate by double-clicking on the padlock or key. Furthermore, protected pages with this protocol begin with https:// . For example, https://www.humboldtseeds.net
