Service Description

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the leading security protocol on the Internet. SSL is widely used in the form of digital certificates that do two things: validate the identity of a web site and to create an encrypted connection for transmitting private documents or personal data in a secured environment.

At Clemson, SSL Certificates are used in many applications as a means of verifying the identity or authenticity of a program, user or machine. The use most people see is in verifying the identity of web servers for secure (https) sessions.
