The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) (and Transport Layer Security (TLS) is
the most widely deployed security protocol used today. It is essentially
a protocol that provides a secure channel between two machines operating
over the Internet or an internal network. In today's Internet focused world,
we typically see SSL in use when a web browser needs to securely connect
to a web server over the insecure Internet.
