I want to use verisign and something like https://secured.mydomain.com... I want to give the vistors some confident so that they can fill their sensitive info (like credit card) onto my website.
Also, I saw some site got a certificate to identify what 's their site like Rental Cars (Budget cars), how to apply a certicate like that or it's come with the pack with verisign??
cheers, have a nice day!!
When an SSL client connects to an SSL server, the server presents a certificate, essentially an electronic piece of proof that machine is who it claims to be. This certificate is signed by a 'Certificate Authority' (hereafter a CA) -- usually a trusted third party like Verisign. A client will accept this certificate only if
- The certificate presented matches the private key being used by the remote end.
- The certificate has been signed correctly by the CA.
- The client recognizes the CA as trusted.
It is also possible for an SSL client to present a certificate, called a client certificate or peer certificate, although the methods for generating them are all the same.
