The Internet was created with the best human aspirations in mind. From its nascent and humble beginnings, the intention of the Internet was to create point-to-point communications linking people and machines at light speed. The value of knowledge increases when shared.

However, as it is with well-intentioned human aspirations, the darker aspirations soon follow. Communications do not get a free pass. In the 21st century, perhaps before, nation-states initiated advanced persistent threat, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) and other cyber-attacks with the intention of crippling or destroying services.

Therefore, the fruition of the Internet cannot exist without trusted point-to-point communications. The foundation of trusted Internet communications are Secure Socket Link (SSL) certificates, an encryption technology installed on Web servers that permits transmission of sensitive data through an encrypted connection. Using a public-key infrastructure (PKI), SSL certificates authenticate the end-use website and the endpoint server, making it difficult for those sites to be imitated or forged. SSL certificates are purchased from companies known as certificate authorities (CAs).

Download this white paper to get insight on how to:

  • Manage an SSL certification throughout the entire life cycle of a certificate
  • Keep your website secure with as little friction for the organization as possible
