Common SSL Attacks – What Kind of Attacks Does SSL Prevent?

SSL is the standard in online security.  It is used to encrypt data sent over the Internet between a client (your computer) and a server (a website's computer).  this automatically prevents many types of attacks: if a hacker intercepts encrypted data, the hacker can't read it or use it without the private decryption key.
SSL makes many websites more secure.  It often protects data from being stolen, modified, or spoofed.  No website can ever be perfectly safe, but any website that stores personal information or other sensitive data should have SSL to add a greater level of security to the site.
Assaults on trust through the SSL/TLS-encrypted traffic are now common and growing in frequency, sophistication, and sheer brazenness. The low-risk, high-reward nature of SSL/TLS vulnerability ensures that these trends will continue, placing organizations at risk of breach, failed audits, and unplanned system downtime. The following examples describe a few of the most common techniques, the impact on businesses, and suggestions on how to prevent them.
