SSL stands for secure sockets layer, it uses a cryptographic system to create a secure connection between client and web server. The SSL protocol is used by millions of online stores to serve three primary functions:
- Secure private information between the web servers and the customers as they browse the site by using encryption.
- Secure the administration console so sensitive passwords, credit card numbers, and customer data cannot be intercepted.
- Provide a Secure Seal on the site that shows customers that the site protects their data and that this is a legitimate company.
Comparing to HTTP protocol the HTTPS requires an initial handshake which can be very slow; therefore TomatoCart only uses SSL for the sections which are necessary including: my account area, checkout area and administration panel.
