The keys and asymmetric algorithms system :

The SSL protocol is based on a data encryption system using algorithms to transform them and make them comprehensible exclusively by the parties involved: the issuer and the receiver.

Encryption is based on the creation of a pair of digital keys :

  • The private key : Generated and installed on the website’s server, its role is to decrypt data communicated by the public key. Also known as the decryption key, this key remains secret and is transmitted to nobody.

  • The public key : Installed on the site, it is the SSL certificate itself transmitted without restriction. It allows to encrypt the exchanged data with the server’s website.
