At Ziggy Art we aim to provide our customers with the best security for ease at mind. That is why we have now upgraded our website with an SSL certificate because your safety comes first. You'll now find our more secure website at Here
What is SSL?
The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a security protocol used primarily by Web browsers and Web servers to help users protect their data during transfer. An SSL Certificate contains public key as well as verified identification information. When a browser (or client) points to a secured web site, the server shares the public key with the client to establish an encryption method and a unique session key. The client confirms that it recognises and trusts the issuer of the SSL Certificate. This process is known as the "SSL handshake" and it begins a secure session that protects message privacy and message integrity. Read our Beginners Guide to Digital SSL Certificates to learn more.
Why do we need SSL?
SSL allows you to encrypt the data, usually sensitive information like credit card numbers, sent from a visitor’s browser to your web server. This is necessary because data on the web is normally sent in clear text from computer to computer until it reaches its destination. Any computer that passes on the data can see that information. If an attacker is able to listen to the traffic on a computer between a visitor’s web browser and your web server, they can steal the sensitive information. This is called a man-in-the-middle attack.
What are the advantages of using an SSL Certificate?
Encrypts the login form on the website.
Encrypts any personal or sensitive data such as customer names and address.
