An encrypted SSL communication requires that all information sent between a customer and a server is encrypted by the software sending the information and decrypted by the software receiving the information, thus protecting personal information upon their transmission. Moreover, all information sent using the SSL protocol shall be protected by a mechanism that automatically verifies whether the data have been altered upon transmission.
