Are you want to have a SSL secured SharePoint environment and be sure that SharePoint data is secure? In this case, you are at the right place! I would like to tell you about SharePoint SSL security and SharePoint SSL certificates in this post.
SSL – Secure Sockets Layer
What is SSL (Secure Socket Layer)
It stands for “Secure Sockets Layer” and it is a protocol that creates secure (HTTPS) connectivity between the server and your application and allows encrypting and decrypting data sent between the two. The applications like web browsers (Internet Explorer and Firefox), email programs like Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail.app, and SFTP (secure file transfer protocol) programs are configured to run SSL. These programs are automatically able to receive SSL connections. But to establish a secure SSL connection your application must have an encryption key assigned to it by a Certification Authority in the form of a Certificate. When your application owns its unique key, you can establish a secure connection using the SSL protocol. In case you are transmitting confidential, business critical information using your SharePoint environment with the SSL encryption will protect it from others seeing it. Do not let your data to be available for those who shouldn’t have it. You can always be sure that sensitive information like Social Security numbers, credit card numbers and so on is protected by a secure HTTPS connection and your customers can trust to your site.
