Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Using SSL for login, part of Programming Foundations: Web Security.
- In this movie we will discuss the importance of…logging in using secure connections.…When we talk about secure connections,…we're talking about SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer.…SSL provides communication security in two ways.…One, it verifies the authenticity of the remote server…to make sure it is who we think it is.…And second, it encrypts all data…that's exchanged with that server.…You're probably most familiar with it as the lock that…your browser displays when you're on an ecommerce website.…
That lock let's you know that the page is using…SSL to communicate with the server.…So why do we need SSL?…It's easy to think of the communication between…a browser and a server as being a very direct…connection, that the browser is sending a request to the…server and the server is responding back to the browser.…But that's a very simplified view…and it's not how it really works.…Instead there's a network of hardware between…our browser and the server and there's a network…of hardware between the server and our browser…
