What is SSL?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a client. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and encrypted. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online communications with their customers.
What is STARTTLS?
STARTTLS is an email protocol command that tells an email server that an email client, including an email client running in a web browser, wants to turn an existing insecure connection into a secure one.
