TheECheck.com SSL Certification and Standards
With an SSL connection, the customer enters their personal bank information online, and the data is encrypted in the gateway and only shared with the payment processor. This is a requirement for all TheECheck merchants to maintain the secure payment method. To make an SSL connection, the SSL protocol requires that a server should have an SSL certificate installed.
Why Do I Need SSL?
— To Protect Your Customers and Their Sensitive Payment Information
— To Meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards
What is an SSL Certificate?
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS): The standard protocols for encrypting communications between users and eCommerce sites, preventing unauthorized access any transmitted data.
SSL Certificate: An electronic file that identifies individuals and servers. This digital certificate is required to initiate an SSL session because it is used to authenticate the server prior to establishing the session. Indicated by an “https” in the address bar (instead of “http”) and a small gold padlock displayed by the browser, an SSL certificate guarantees a website 100% secure.
SSL certificates can be used on web servers for internet security and servers such as IMAP, POP3 and SMTP for email collection, transmission and storage security.
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP): Defines how electronic devices connect and transfer data via the internet. TCP is for communication between applications. IP is for communication between computers.
Internet Messaging Access Protocol (IMAP): Accesses email stored on a remote mail server from different devices at multiple locations.
Post Office Protocol (POP3): An application-layer Internet standard protocol used by local email clients to retrieve e-mail from a remote server over a TCP/IP connection.
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP): Accesses email across IP networks, i.e. from a single device in a static location.
