How to Add SSL certificate for Custom Application & Tracking Domain

What Is SSL? What Is an SSL Certificate?

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

Typically, data sent between web browsers and web servers is transmitted in plain text — leaving users vulnerable to digital eavesdropping. This data can be anything, from a mailing address in a form, to credit card numbers on a check-out page, to years of emails and saved documents. If an attacker intercepts this data as it passes through an unsecured connection, they can collect and use that information.

SSL, on the other hand, encrypts this data, allowing sensitive information to be transmitted securely. When a browser connects to a website secured by SSL, the browser checks for proof that it is secure, which is provided by an SSL certificate hosted by the web server. If the browser verifies the SSL certificate is authentic, the server and the browser establish a private connection. The website and browser then use shared cryptographic keys to encrypt information sent between them, check the integrity of the data sent, and authenticate the identity of the transmitting party.

The easiest way to tell if a website is secure is by looking in the URL. If you see “https” instead of “http,” your connection is private — the “s” stands for “secure.”
