What is SSL (Secure Socket Layer) ?

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a modern version of SSL.

SSL is a technology/method to securely exchange(send and receive) the data between two systems in encrypted format, so that no one can read and modify the content in the middle.

The two systems can be Web Browser - Server, Mobile App - Server, Server-to-Server. In other words SSL is establishing secure connection between client and server. 

When HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) is present in website URL (Ex. https://ezeontech.com), means the communication is secure between browser and server.
