How do SSL Certificates offer Website Security?

SSL certificates granted from reputed CA(S) like Comodo can protect websites against various forms of hacking by preventing:

1. Hackers from Impersonating Others: When hackers get hold of personal information belonging to others, they can use this stolen information to their advantage. It is for this reason that Tamil Nadu government is using SSL certificates – to prevent hackers from impersonating its website in order to steal or exploit the personal data belonging to Tamil Nadu residents which they submit at the time of applying for smart ration card.

2. Hackers from Intercepting Data in Transit: Another aspect of SSL certificate is that they ensure the data being exchanged online between two parties is not intercepted by hackers. This type of protection is implemented using a technology called SSL encryption. For example, when a Tamil Nadu resident submits his or her personal information like phone number or address when applying for smart ration card, there is every chance of hackers intercepting this data transmission to get hold of the personal information which they can use for ulterior purposes. Having an SSL certificate for your website prevents this form of interception.
