SSL / Secure Sockets Layer
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It is is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
Most of the modern browsers support SSL, and many web sites use the SSL protocol to obtain confidential user information, such as credit card numbers and to ensures it will remain private.
By convention, web pages that require an SSL connection start with "https://" instead of "http://"
WebSitePulse supports SSL when specifying URLs for URL monitors.
