Authentication certificates are crucial to secure communications and ensure the identity of those involved. Users need assurance that they are communicating with the correct website (server SSL certificate) and not one that is to pass himself off as authentic (phishing). It may also happen that the service provider needs to authenticate legally who accesses (client certificate or digital signature) to be able to blame the actions taken on the server. The digital certificate is a common credential that provides a means to verify the identity. The certificates use cryptographic techniques to address the lack of physical contact between those who communicate. The use of these techniques limits the possibility of a malicious user to intercept, alter or falsify messages. Digital certificates are electronic files that work like an online password to verify the identity of a user or computer. They are used to create the SSL encrypted channel, used for client communications. A certificate is a digital statement issued by a certification authority that validates the certificate holder's identity and enables the parties to communicate securely using encryption. They authenticate that their holders, people and sites are who or what they claim to be and protect data exchanged online from theft or tampering. They are issued by a trusted certificate authority or a public key infrastructure (PKI) or can be self-signed. Each type of digital certificate is tamper-proof and can not be faked. May be issued for several uses. These include Web user authentication, Web server authentication, S / MIME (Secure / Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions), IPsec, TLS (TSL) and code signing. This certification ensures the authentication of the sites and their owners also ensures secure and encrypted communication between the end user and the website where you are accessing, transmitting this, all confidence in proprietary identity of the website, guaranteeing them security for browse, research and purchase. For total security guarantee is also certified the security of applications, thereby ensuring that all operations between client and server are properly safeguarded.
The Digital Certificates EV SSL (Extended Validation) represent the next generation of SSL certificates because they help protect against phishing attacks. They work associated with high security Web browsers so that the website visitors with a digital certificate EV will see a "Green Address Bar". The Digital Certificates EV is a new industry standard for verification of site identity. The Digital Certificates EV help a website to gain a competitive advantage by increasing confidence in the relationship with its customers this will be an increase in sales and revenues.
An e-commerce scenario is essential to provide its customers a high level of trust and security. The user must be sure that the site is genuine and that the information you send and receive is personal and confidential. The server digital certificates are intended to protect confidential information (eg credit card numbers, financial data, personal data) the actions of hackers and other malicious users.
Code licenses enable software manufacturers to implement a digital signature in developed programs and macros, ensuring their copyright, while transmitting to the end user authenticity and trust, that the digital signature ensures when assigning to that solution identification safe and credible source that originated it.
Aimed at individuals or organizations, these digital certificates are the digital identity on the Internet. These certificates allow authenticate, sign and encrypt emails and electronic documents, ensuring complete confidentiality of their electronic messages.
