Entrust’s SSL/TLS Best Practices Guide is a key resource for those charged with SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) deployment. In our guide, you’ll find expert advice from the thought leaders at Entrust on SSL/TLS certificate installation, and tips for managing security for optimal performance.
Included in the SSL/TLS Best Practices Guide:
Certificates and Private Keys
Enhanced Server Security
Our guide is designed to help make SSL/TLS certificate installation easier, so you can use SSL expertly and with confidence.
Extended Validation (EV) certificates were launched in January 2007. EV certificates are an effort to define a standard for a high assurance SSL/TLS certificate and create a new trust foundation. The EV Guidelines are managed by the leading browsers and certification authorities (CAs) through the CA/Browser Forum, and have been since launch.
Research in the SSL/TLS security market points to a growing need for securing web applications with high assurance certificates issued by a reputable Certification Authority (CA). Organizations want to avoid the negative publicity associated with security breaches and customers want to be assured of data protection when making online transactions.
The need for authentication and assurance is great and options are few; therefore, we have come to rely on encrypted SSL/TLS certificates for almost every new application, appliance, device and cloud service.
This is the second part of the Ponemon Institute’s 2015 Cost of Failed Trust Report, which reveals the damaging impacts on global
business from unprotected cryptographic keys and digital certificates. This new report reveals that most companies lose customers, suffer costly outages, fail audits, and experience breaches due to unprotected and poorly managed keys and certificates.
Gartner expects that by 2017, more than 50% of network attacks will use SSL/TLS. Yet most organizations lack the ability to decrypt and inspect SSL communications to detect threats. The ability to quickly decrypt and inspect SSL traffic in real time to detect threats is imperative. Download this Solution Brief: Eliminate Blind Spots in SSL Encrypted Traffic to learn how.
The rampant rise in cyberattacks and the growing concerns and regulations over data privacy are compelling the increased use of SSL/TLS. But managing even more SSL/TLS to protect data is challenging. See how you can safely expand and rely on SSL/TLS to achieve your data security and privacy goals.
According to Gartner, by 2017, more than ?50% of network attacks will use encrypted SSL/TLS. Most organizations cannot decrypt and inspect SSL communications to detect these threats, which creates security blind spots.

Transport Layer Security, widely known as Secure Socket Layer or SSL is the most popular application of public key cryptography in the world. Sometimes, TLS can give illusion of security when it is not. This paper explains TLS and its best uses.
The Beginner’s Guide to Thawte SSL/TLS will rapidly demystify how SSL/TLS technology creates this trust, and explains why all SSL/TLS certificates and the Certificate Authorities issuing them are not created equal.
La Guía para principiantes sobre los certificados SSL/TLS de Thawte aclara con rapidez cómo garantiza la seguridad esta tecnología y explica por qué no todos los certificados SSL/TLS ni todas las autoridades de certificación son iguales.
In „Erste Schritte mit Thawte SSL/TLS“ erläutern wir in leicht verständlicher Form, wie SSL/TLS diese Vertrauenswürdigkeit herstellt und warum nicht alle SSL/TLS-Zertifikate und die ausstellenden Zertfizierungsstellen (Certificate Authority, CA) gleich sind.
