Secure Your Personal Data in Online Casinos
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology allows for ultimate privacy financial or personal information, login credentials, and so on. Every real money casino which properly implements these systems protects your data from exploitation, hacking and eavesdropping. Considering that all major world bank institutions also use these systems, it’s clear that the best online casinos who use it are serious about your privacy and security.
The most safe online casinos use digital encryption technology – a minimum of 128 SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). This is the established standard security technology used across the online casino for securing an encrypted link between a server and a casino client.
SSL creates these connections between website and Web browser through what is called an “SSL Handshake”. The server (the casino website in question) first digitally transmits a copy of its SSL Certificate and what is called the public key. The Web browser (you, the player connecting to the site and/or providing private information) checks the certificate root against a list of trusted Certificate Authorities (entity that issues digital certificates) for any expirations or revocations. Once your Web browser’s back-end decides it trusts the site’s CA, it creates an encrypted session key using the server’s public key.
From here, the server decrypts your browser’s session key with a third stage security measure called the private key. Then, the server sends back the session key with an encrypted acknowledgement of verification, before starting the encrypted session – usually when you’re depositing money, providing private details, and so on.
This is all processed behind the scenes almost instantaneously upon moving from Web page to Web page – if it doesn’t process, your Web browser or computer security software will let you know of anything malicious or suspicious.
