  2. 2. Establish your credibility in aconnected worldPrice is a decisive argument in any purchase, but on the Web, it’s not enough!Faced with the rise of cyber criminality, it is essential to provide a secureenvironment for your customers.Now is the time to opt for SSL certificates!Develop your competitive advantageOnline retailers are not the only ones who need certificates.Whether a company wants to protect access to its extranet, messaging system orFTP server, it has everything to gain by implementing SSL connections.The SSL certificate will create a trustworthy climate and strengthen your site’scredibility. It can even turn into a competitive advantage, as customers are moreinclined to shop on sites whose owner can be verified and that effectively protecttheir sensitive data. The SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is like a piece of ID.It is a vital aspect of the Certificates are issued toauthentication phases (so that websites by organizations calledpasswords do not circulate in Certificate Authorities afterplain text) and payment phases control procedures whose(so that bank account and credit complexity varies depending oncard details do not circulate the type of the certificateunencrypted). requested.There are several certificate categories, some of which offer little benefit whileothers create a true climate of trust. This second category fulfills a double role byidentifying your company and its website, and encrypting the data exchangedbetween the site and its visitors.
  3. 3. Choosing the right level of security Several certificate categories are available to meet a variety of needs: Domain Validation (DV): this certificate offers little benefit because it merely verifies your website information using WHOIS; cybercriminals can easily obtain these certificates and use them in their scams. Organization Validation (OV): this certificate guarantees the truthfulness of company information, which is verified prior to certificate issuance by means of a company registration certificate or other official document. It does not, however, guarantee company ownership of the site. Extended Validation (EV): this is the only certificate that enables you to establish a veritable trust-based relationship with your customers, because company identity, website ownership and so forth are verified. The Certificate Authority also checks whether the site has been blacklisted and contacts company senior executives to verify their existence. When an EV certificate is used, the color of the browser address bar automatically turns to green. How much does it cost? Certificate prices vary depending on their category, ranging from €100 to €600 on average. They are issued for a limited duration, renewable upon certificate expiration.Installing your certificateIt is extremely simple to install a certificate on your server.First you must gather all the information required to obtain a certificate, basedon the category you have chosen. Warning: this data must be verifiable. Selectthe desired encryption key size and generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request)file containing all of this information, using the special menu provided or thecommand lines on your web server. If your site is hosted by a third party, askthem to do this for you.Next, submit the CSR file to SSL Europa which will verify with its CertificateAuthority (CA) such as Keynectis, the authenticity of your data using auditedprocedures.
