What is SSL Certificate?

These certificates provide encryption between client-server communication and prevent forgery by verifying the domain of the servers that client software connect.

Their usage is prevalent among e-commerce web sites where online payments are made and banking, e-government and e-commerce web applications where sensitive user information is exchanged.

Secure server certificates (SSL - Secure Sockets Layer) are used to enable security in data communication over the internet.

SSL protocol mandates the usage of an X.509 electronic certificate (an SSL certificate) on the server side. The domain name of the server of which the certificate belongs reside explicitly in the SSL certificate.

When a connection request comes from a client to a server, the client first verifies the SSL certificate of the server. Verification of the certificate validation ensures that the client connects to the right server and not forwarded to a different server.

After certificate verification, the client and the server agree upon an encryption key that will be used to encrypt the data to be exchanged between them during that session. Hence, intrusion to the communication between the client and the server by third parties is prevented.

TURKTRUST supplies SSL certificates with an equivalent security and reliability with the qualified electronic certificate services it gives according to the Turkish Electronic Signature Law as well as the relevant international standards.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SSL Certificate? What is it used for?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) server certificate is a digital certificate that is used to verify the identity of the web site that is connected and used to encrypt the data exchanged to and from the server.

SSL certificates are used to verify the servers that are connected over the internet or any network by the users. If the user who connects the server also possesses an electronic certificate, it is possible to verify the identity of the user as well. During this type of a connection, a secure tunnel is formed between the client and the server and the exchanged data is encrypted. SSL certificates are mainly used on web servers for providing connection security. Banking sector, e-commerce and e-government applications are the most frequently used areas of SSL certificates.

What is the usage period of an SSL certificate?

TURKTRUST SSL certificates are supplied with 1-year and 2-year options.

Do you give renewal notice before the expiry date of our SSL certificate?

An automatic e-mail notice is sent to the organizational representative one month before the expiry date of the SSL. Besides, our clients are also informed about renewal steps by phone.

Do you extend the validity period or renew SSL certificates?

According to the international standards that we comply with, validity periods of SSL certificates cannot be changed or the contents of the SSL certificates cannot be modified after issuance. In case of a similar request, a new SSL certificate should be issued.

What is the difference between DV SSL and OV SSL? Why is DV SSL cheaper? Why should we prefer OV SSL?

Nowadays, security has become the most important issue for digital technologies that improve very fast. Under these circumstances, DV SSL (Domain Validated SSL) certificates that can be issued easily and with low costs but without any organizational validation may introduce security vulnerabilities for both the users and the organizations. As DV SSL certificates can be issued within minutes by only domain verification and with no organizational validation steps, their usage is not recommended for critical and sensitive data transfer operations.

Usage of organizationally validated OV SSL certificates for critical network connections, where invaluable information exchange regarding your organization and your clients occur, will substantially increase your security. An OV SSL (Organization Validated SSL) certificate verifies the identity of the server, and hence ensures the correct web site is connected by the user.

What is SSL?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) server certificate is a digital certificate that is used to verify the identity of the web site that is connected and used to encrypt the data exchanged to and from the server.

What are the types of SSL certificates? Which SSL type should I buy?

  • DV SSL certificates are the ones with low validation level with solely domain validation and that could be issued in minutes. Thus, they are sold for very low prices by especially hosting companies. Their usage is not recommended in situations where security is of high importance and critical data transfer is required.
  • OV SSL certificates comprise information about the domain owner entity and all these information are validated by the Certification Authority (CA) that issues the certificate. In this respect, they are more secure and reliable SSL certificates than DV SSL certificates. On the average, they are issued within 1 to 2 days of validation process. Even though their prices are higher than those of DV SSL certificates, this price level is actually very reasonable when compared with the security they provide.
  • EV SSL certificates are the ones with the highest security level that validate the certificate owner’s physical, legal and commercial existence along with very detailed organizational validation processes. While using this type of SSL certificate, a green address bar will be displayed on the browser interface indicating that the web site has an EV SSL certificate. This is a kind of confirmation for the users indicating that they are connected to a secure site.

What are the SSL alternatives for different needs?

Due to the need of using more than one server names under the same SSL certificate, over time “Wildcard” and “SAN” SSL certificate alternatives have emerged.

  • Wildcard SSL is a kind of SSL certificate which comprises all sub-domains of a specific domain that it is issued for (e.g. "*.domain.com.tr").
  • SAN SSL is a kind of SSL certificate that comprises multiple server names or domains. An average of 5 to 10 different server names may be included.
