The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a commonly-used protocol for managing the security of a message transmission on the Internet. SSL has recently been succeeded by Transport Layer Security (TLS), which is based on SSL. SSL uses a program layer located between the Internet's Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and Transport Control Protocol (TCP) layers. SSL is included as part of both the Microsoft and Netscape browsers and most Web server products.

Functionally, you use SSL when you begin a hypertext interaction with "https:". That tells your browser you want your session encrypted. Most often, you do that by simply clicking on a link at, for example, a bank. The result is that a "layer" of software is added at both the bank and in your computer, to encrypt communications between you and the bank.

The encryption takes place using public key cryptography. When you use this method for email, it is truly a "public" key. It can be looked up in a database, such as the MIT keyserver.

When SSL is used between a personal computer and a bank, each of them creates a public-private key pair just for this session, and sends the public key to the other.

I hope this helps! :(
