Africa Now uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), a protocol for the secure transmission of data via the Internet or another network. A protocol is a set of rules and procedures determining the format and transmission of information (data). The SSL protocol treats data in several different ways and “shifts” the information so that data can not be read during a transmission between two computers. This “shift” is called encryption. When the data reaches the receiver, SSL verifies that the sender is correct (server authentication), “returns” the data to its original readable order, and also checks that the data has not been changed during transmission (message integrity).
