What is SSL?

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, also referred to as TLS (Transport Layer Security).

SSL activates the padlock on web browsers - indicating to a visitor that the connection to the website is secure.

You'll see two techie terms being used in the SSL industry - Root Strength and Encryption Strength. Root Strength is the strength of the cryptographic keys used to issue your Certificate, and Encryption Strength is the strength of the encrypted link between the browser and the server. In both cases AlphaSSL is as good as it gets - 2048 bit root strength and 256 bit encryption strength.
