SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a method of securing transactions via the Internet. The standard SSL was developed by Netscape in collaboration with Mastercard, Bank of America, MCI and Silicon Graphics. It is based on a process of public key cryptography to ensure the security of data transmission over the internet. Its principle is to establish a secure communication channel (encrypted) between two machines (client and server) after a step of authentication .
The system is independent of the SSL protocol , which means it can both secure Web transactions made by the HTTP protocol as connections via FTP , POP or IMAP . Indeed, SSL is such an additional layer to ensure the security of data between the layer Application layer and Transport ( TCP , for example).
In this way, SSL is transparent to the user (read: it can ignore it uses SSL). For example, a user using a web browser to connect to a secure ecommerce site with SSL send encrypted data without any manipulation necessary on his part.
Almost all browsers now support SSL. Example Netscape Navigator displays a locked padlock to indicate the connection to a secure site using SSL and an open padlock otherwise, while Microsoft Internet Explorer displays a padlock only when connection to a secure site using SSL.

A secure web server using SSL has a URL starting with https://, where the "s" obviously means secured (secured).
