Description

SSL is the security standard for securing communications over the web. Because it is largely configurable and comes in a wide variety of flavors, it can be very confusing. 

SSL Simplified provides fundamental topics of SSL, Certificate Authorities, self-signed certificates, a demo of how to communicate with HTTPS web services, and a demo of how to integrate SSL into your own web services. 

This course is meant for beginners to SSL but it's also a good refresher to those who are familiar with SSL/TLS. 

By the end of the course, you will understand the fundamentals of SSL and you'll be able to create a self-signed certificate and incorporate it into your web services.
