The first volume of this series addressed the hypothesis of the secure socket layer (SSL) in the context of .NET based websites. We have obtained a thorough understanding about SSL internals, such as how they work, the role of digital certificates, and the advantages of SSL implementation on websites. This article resumes the voyage by covering the applied aspect of SSL on .NET website via the IIS web server, along with the creation of digital certificates. Abstract Secure socket layer (SSL) is specially designed to protect data transmitted from server to client and vice versa by enabling digital certificates on IIS websites to encode the communication and prevent others from observing sensitive information. SSL employs public key cryptography to establish a secure connection between client browser and server, since anything encrypted with a public key can only be decrypted with the private key and vice versa.
