Encryption is the process of scrambling data into an undecipherable format that can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key.

A certificate serves as an electronic “passport” that establishes an online entity’s credentials when doing business on the web. When an internet user attempts to send confidential information to a web server, the user’s browser accesses the server’s digital certificate and establishes a secure connection.
