What is SSL? Does eKnowID have a SSL certificate?

Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL

SSL is an acronym for “Secure Sockets Layer.” It is a security protocol developed for sending information over the Internet safely and securely. It makes your sensitive information unrecognizable to all servers except the one you are inputting your data into. Any website that asks sensitive information should be SSL secure, and eKnowID does have a SSL certificate.
