Secure payment with SSL.

What is the SSL protocol?

The SSL/TLS protocol, or more simply SSL for Secure Socket Layer, is a protocol for securing exchanges on the Internet. Originally developed by Netscape, SSL was renamed TLS (for Transport Layer Security) in 2001.

It is used by most browsers to guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of the data exchanged, as well as the authenticity of the payment organisations (server authentication). When a transaction is secured by this protocol, a closed key or padlock is displayed in the lower corner of the screen and the address of the page consulted begins with https://.

In practice

After having filled his virtual basket, the Internet user accesses the electronic payment form. This form is placed on a SSL secure server that encrypts the data provided by the customer. With this secure payment system, the customer can therefore enter his credit card number and expiry date without risk of electronic piracy. After validating the payment and the order, he receives a summary confirmation message.

For their part, merchants can make payments at their payment terminal (POS terminal) and check the validity of the card used. The SSL payment procedure is carried out in real time: the buyer's account is immediately debited.
