Which of the following is a concern when data are transmitted through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
encryption, implemented on a trading partner’s server?
The organization does not have control over encryption.
Messages are subjected to wire tapping.
Data might not reach the intended recipient.
The communication may not be secure.
The SSL security protocol provides data encryption, server authentication, message integrity and
optional client authentication. Because SSL is built into all major browsers and web servers, simply
installing a digital certificate turns on the SSL capabilities. SSL encrypts the datum while it is being
transmitted over the internet. The encryption is done in the background, without any interaction
from the user; consequently, there is no password to remember. The other choices are incorrect.
Since the communication between client and server is encrypted, the confidentiality of information
is not affected by wire tapping. Since SSL does the client authentication, only the intended recipient
will receive the decrypted datA. All data sent over an encrypted SSL connection are protected with
a mechanism to detect tampering, i.e., automatically determining whether data has been altered in
