When we talk about internet search or search engine, the first word that pops out of our mind is “GOOGLE”.
As we know that Google search engine is the best in the world because of the complex algorithm of the index bot, and it is even good to know that they are regularly working at their best to provide more fast, relevant and secure searching services.
Recently Google has introduced SSL search which provides a more secure search.
The above line usually utters the question that WHAT IS SSL website all about?
When a website is secured with SSL, the traffic that is sent and received from the website is encrypted, and decrypting SSL is nearly impossible as it will take many many years to do crack it.
Accessing Google from your company or university or somewhere else, where your internet connection goes through a proxy server, the network administrator is able to tell what sites you have been and even probably what have you searched for. The packets that are sent without SSL is a clear traffic and can be easily decoded to view what you are trying to search.
How to access Google SSL?
Accessing Google SSL search is really easy, all you need to do is to type “https” instead of “http” while accessing google.com
The address is “https://www.google.com” or “https://encrypted.google.com/” Many other services like Gmail and Googlepages can also be accessed using ‘https’
