Understanding SSL Purposes
If you are creating a web-based form where you want the visitor to enter data and submit the form. To the web server for processing, you may want to use SSL (secure socket layer) encryption service.This is especially true if you are entering credit card numbers or other sensitive information.
As data is transmitted from the browser of the user to the web server when using SSL software. All the shape data is encrypted. When downloaded on the web server, it will be decrypted automatically. And you can then store it or process it as usual on the web server.
