SSL Certificate
« on: May 21, 2014, 02:13:12 PM »
I have a query.

Is an SSL Certificate sufficient for securing a website? If there is an eCommerce website that offers with online transactions what security measures should be adopted by that website? Is there any alternative for SSL certificate and if there are, are they secure?

Hi Arnav,

I think it is an extremely crucial factor for an eCommerce website to have an SSL certificate installed on the website. Most of the people around the world check the security of the website by clicking on the icon displayed in the browser. For an eCommerce website, this factor is of utmost importance. Apart from having an SSL certificate, I think that in order to maintain privacy and security every website owner should make sure that the website is using strong and complicated passwords everywhere.

Here are some important measures that every eCommerce website should take for security purposes:

* Create an address and card verification process
* Set up system alerts for any kind of suspicious activity
* Create a multi-layered security system
* Make the use of tracking numbers for all the orders

I would like to mention one important tip:

Avoid keeping any critical data on the server for a long time. If the customer's confidential information is on the server for a long period of time, any attacker might get allured to steal this information. Every eCommerce website must store only the minimum required information that is available for the current use and nothing more than that.

Thanks for sharing this link. Do you also provide a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) with the SSL certificates?
