Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is the industry-standard protocol for establishing a secure communications link when transmitting information over untrusted networks. SSL works with any TCP/IP application and automatically establishes an encrypted “tunnel” between the client and server. This is necessary to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of data.
