SSL uses digital certificates issued by a valid certification authority (CA) to authenticate both parties to the transaction (client and server). If the Web server is set up to require secure connections, it will reject non-secure requests.When the client’s browser initiates a secure connection, the SSL “handshake” occurs. The browser checks the certificate to validate the identity of the server, the validity of the certification authority, and confirm that the certificate hasn’t expired. Then the client and server negotiate the encryption methods and keys to be used.
