Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology protects you and your personal information
This security certificate is used to protect data during the checkout and payment stages of ordering from FamilyDeals.com.au - a small padlock appears on the bottom or the top of your browser window and the web page address starts with "https://" - so that you can have peace of mind knowing that your data is safe and secure.
1. An SSL Certificate enables encryption of sensitive information during online transactions.
2. Each SSL Certificate contains unique, authenticated information about the certificate owner.
3. A Certificate Authority verifies the identity of the certificate owner when it is issued.
How Encryption Works
Imagine sending mail through the postal system in a clear envelope. Anyone with access to it can see the data. If it looks valuable, they might take it or change it. An SSL Certificate establishes a private communication channel enabling encryption of the data during transmission. Encryption scrambles the data, essentially creating an envelope for message privacy.
How Authentication Works
Imagine receiving an envelope with no return address and a form asking for your bank account number. Every GeoTrust SSL Certificate is created for a particular server in a specific domain for a verified business entity. When the SSL handshake occurs, the browser requires authentication information from the server. By clicking the closed padlock in the browser window or certain SSL trust marks (such as the GeoTrust Seal), the Web site visitor sees the authenticated organisation FamilyDeals.com.au. In high-security browsers, the authenticated organisation name is prominently displayed and the address bar turns green when an Extended Validation SSL Certificate is detected. If the information does not match or the certificate has expired, the browser displays an error message or warning.
Why Authentication Matters
Like a passport or a driver’s license, an SSL Certificate is issued by a trusted source, known as the Certificate Authority (CA). Many CAs simply verify the domain name and issue the certificate. GeoTrust verifies the existence of your business, the ownership of your domain name, and your authority to apply for the certificate, a higher standard of authentication.
