  • There is no such term called SSL Server .I can explain you what SSL is.

    Here is the answer :

    In simple terms SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is one of the security technology which is used to establish a secure connection between web server and web browser. This secured link is in encrypted format, so it assures users that data which is passed between this links means web server and browser is private and original. SSL is an Industry standard protocol which is used by several websites for protecting their online transactions with their customers.

    Originally SSL was developed by Netscape Communications, for allowing secure connection of Web Browser & Web Server. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), is the accepted standard for Web Security. The very first version of SSL has never been released due to some problems regarding the protection of credit card transactions over Internet. In 1994, again another version was created by Netscape named as SSLv2, which overcame the problem of first version and able to secure credit card number and other sensitive data and also offered the authentication of Web Server through the use of encryption and digital certificates. In 1995, Netscape furthered one more step and strengthened their cryptographic algorithms in order to resolve the problems related to SSLv2 and they released it under another version called SSLv3, which supports several other security algorithms which were not supported by SSLv2.

    The main role of SSL is to offer security to the Web traffic. In this security includes confidentiality, integrity of message & authentication. These elements of security is achieved by the SSL with the help of cryptography, digital signature & certificates.
