Are existing SSL certificates still sufficient for securing online transactions?
Posted by James Robshaw on 10 May 2006 11:10 PM
Today, the lock icon in a user's browser window fundamentally means that their traffic with the website is encrypted and that a CA has identified the website and issued an SSL certificate to the person who owns that domain. Many trusted CAs, offer certificates with different methods of background checking. In many instances, these types of certificates will be perfectly valid, for example to secure traffic between a company's servers or to verify the identity of Jane Bloggs flower shop (since she is an unlikely phishing target.)
