What is SSL?

Website Security
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client, typically a web server (website) and a browser; or a mail server and a mail client (e.g., Outlook).

SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely.
  • How it works?
    An SSL creates a secure tunnel through which information including personal identifiable documentation, driving licence details, passport or company based papers can pass safely.
  • First, the SSL "handshake"
    When a Job Seeker enters an SSL-protected area of WorkLocally, the SSL certificate automatically creates an encrypted connection with the Job Seekers browser.
  • The padlock icon appears
    Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and HTTPS prefix will appear in the Job Seekers browser bar to show them they're safe to share personal or confidential details. The high-assurance "Extended Validation" Certificate browser status bar will also turn a green colour.
  • You're good to go!
    All information passing to and from WorkLocally is now scrambled by the 2048-bit encryption that's virtually unbreakable by hackers.

Without SSL

Website Security
Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text - leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker is able to intercept all data being sent between a browser and a web server they can see and re-use that information.

More specifically, SSL is a security protocol. Protocols describe how algorithms should be used; in this case, the SSL protocol determines variables of the encryption for both the link and the data being transmitted.
