Recent developments in browser/server technology enable Internet users to use the services available on the web avoiding electronic frauds. Two examples of these technologies are the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) developed by Netscape and the Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol (S-HTTP) developed by Terisa Systems, Inc. Said protocols lead browsers and servers to reciprocal authentication in their final sessions in such a way to protect the information to be transferred. The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) guarantees protection not only for credit card numbers, online forms and financial data, but also to prevent ALL confidential information, private or personal, to be decrypted and forged.
How is this achieved?
Using cryptographic techniques such as codification and digital signature. These protocols employ the following functions:
- Web browsers and servers make a reciprocal authentication procedure;
- Website owners are authorised to check the access to particular servers;
- Confidential information (such as credit card numbers) can be transferred from browser to server without being accessible to third parties;
- exchange of data between browser and server cannot be altered neither accidentally nor intentionally.
A Certificate Authority is an accredited entity issuing certificates that identify a community of people, systems or other entities that use information net. The certified documents issued by the Certificate Authority include a digital signature that contains the identity of the owner of the certificate and an access key to the certificate itself. The Certificate Authority is in this way a guarantor of the validity of the certificate.
