Certificate Management

Web applications often require an added level of security for transporting sensitive data over untrusted networks. This layer of security is achieved through the use of a digital certificate. This certificate securely verifies the identity of the information provided and protects communications from unauthorized individuals. These certificates, commonly referred to as “SSL certificates”, short for Secured Sockets Layer, are generally licensed from an official certificate provider. SSL use is easily identified by the use of “https://” in an Internet address.
