  What is Secure Sockets Layer? - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: SSL
SSL has recently been succeeded by Transport Layer Security (TLS), which is based on SSL.
The "sockets" part of the term refers to the sockets method of passing data back and forth between a client and a server program in a network or between program layers in the same computer.
SSL uses the public-and-private key encryption system from RSA, which also includes the use of a digital certificate.

 Smart Computing Encyclopedia Entry - Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
SSL uses a public key to encrypt data that is transmitted over an SSL connection.
URLs (uniform resource locators) that have an SSL connection are recognized by the “https” at the beginning of the URL instead of the usual “http.” When you visit a secure Web page, your browser will display a closed padlock or a similar symbol to inform you that SSL is enabled.
SSL protects the information that travels between the browser and server, but it does not protect that data once a server collects it.

  SSL - Secure Sockets Layer, Synthesizer Specification Language
Secure Sockets Layer, is a technology developed by Netscape Communications Inc. for encrypting data sent between clients and servers.
Secure Socket Layer a means for securely surfing the web; websites that support the protocol have an address that starts with "https://" instead of just "http://"; browsers that support the protocol are here referred to as SSL browsers and they generally also support SET
SSL was developed by Netscap, becoming the de facto standard until evolving into Transport Layer Security.

 Secure Sockets Layer instructions
SSL is 'Secure Sockets Layer' - a technology developed several years ago to address these two major problems with transferring sensitive data over the internet.
SSL certificates [and their relatives - X509 certificates, server certificates, digital certificates and digital signatures] are mathematically generated files, that when fed to some complex mathematical algorithms, can act as both a digital 'key' and 'signature' to a web server.
SSL can provide reassurance to customers that their information will remain private; but how you process that data once they submit it to your site, is what ensures that it remains private.

 SSLP Project - The Secure Sockets Layer
SSL foils this possibility by introducing a nonce number, this is in the form of the connection-id which the server randomly generates and sends to the client.
If SSL were layered underneath a long running connection, such as a Telnet application, then this failure to alter session keys becomes a serious security hole.
SSL version 3 [ELG95] was released as an Internet-Draft in June 1995 and was subsequently discussed at the July meeting of the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) in Stockholm.

 PalmSource | Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
In addition to implementing the SSL protocol, the SSL library also provides a general-purpose data buffering scheme that can be used by any socket—even sockets that are sending non-SSL data (or "cleartext").
Once your socket is created and opened, you place it in an SSL "context," which uses it for an SSL "session." You can then use the SSL I/O functions to send and receive SSL-secure data or cleartext—you can even switch between the two modes using the same socket.
The particularly important attributes are Socket and Mode, which we've already seen; InfoCallback and VerifyCallback, which you use to set a context's callback functions; and Error, which returns the most recent SSL protocol error.

 Secure Sockets Layer Overview   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
SSL was developed by Netscape several years ago and gained the support of Microsoft and other Internet client/server developers.
The term "sockets" is used to describe the method for transferring electronic data between a client program and a server program over a network or between program layers located on the same computer.
SSL encryption makes it possible to transmit electronic data in a secure environment, and is virtually impossible for computer hackers to decode.

 Define SSL - Secure Sockets Layer
Meaning of SSL - "Secure Sockets Layer", is an encryption protocol which encodes data sent over the World Wide Web and makes it unreadable to anyone intercepting the transmission by using a public-key cryptosystem.
The Secure Sockets Layer Protocol was developed by Netscape in 1994 in response to the growing concern over security on the Internet.
SSL was originally developed for securing web browser and server communications, but the specification was designed in such a way that other applications such as Email protocols, TELNET and FTP as well any other application protocol on the Internet could also use it.

 Secure Sockets Layer Protocol and Email Security - ITS-Med Security
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) creates a secure connection between a client and a server over which any amount of data can be sent securely.
SSL is useful to protect your password when making an authenticated connection to your email server, but it is not a replacement for protecting sensitive data being sent in email with end-to-end encryption (e.g., PGP).
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a protocol developed by Netscape and approved as a standard by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) for transmitting private documents via the Internet.

 Transport Layer Security - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Developed by Netscape, SSL version 3.0 was released in 1996, which later served as the basis for TLS version 1.0, an IETF standard protocol first defined in RFC 2246.
RFC 3546: "Transport Layer Security (TLS) Extensions", adds a mechanism for negotiating protocol extensions during session initialisation and defines some extensions.
RFC 4366: "Transport Layer Security (TLS) Extensions" describes both a set of specific extensions, and a generic extension mechanism.

 SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Definition
SSL encrypts the data being transmitted so that a third party cannot "eavesdrop" on the transmission and view the data being transmitted.
SSL keeps your name, address, and credit card information between you and merchant to which you are providing it.
While SSL is most commonly seen on the Web (HTTP), it is also used to secure other Internet protocols, such as SMTP for sending e-mail and NNTP for newsgroups.

 [No title]
The security parameters for the pending states can be set by the TLS Handshake Protocol, and the Handshake Protocol can selectively make either of the pending states current, in which case the appropriate current state is disposed of and replaced with the pending state; the pending state is then reinitialized to an empty state.
Note that higher layers should not be overly reliant on TLS always negotiating the strongest possible connection between two peers: there are a number of ways a man in the middle attacker can attempt to make two entities drop down to the least secure method they support.
Security analysis The TLS protocol is designed to establish a secure connection between a client and a server communicating over an insecure channel.

 Secure Socket Layer
SSL is designed to make use of TCP as a communication layer to provide a reliable end-to-end secure and authenticated connection between two points over a network (for example between the service client and the server).
Securing data privacy: data in transport between the client and the server must be protected from interception and be readable only by the intended recipient.
The purpose of the SSL record protocol is to take an application message to be transmitted, fragment the data which needs to be sent, encapsulate it with appropriate headers and create an object just called a record, which is encrypted and can be forwarded for sending under the TCP protocol.
