WIKI SAYS: Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), is cryptographic protocols that provide communication security over the Internet.TLS and SSL encrypt the segments of network connections above the Transport Layer, using asymmetric cryptography for key exchange,symmetric encryption for privacy, and message authentication codes for message integrity.
Several versions of the protocols are in widespread use in applications such as web browsing, electronic mail, Internet faxing, instant messaging and voice-over-IP (VoIP). (via[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Sockets_Layer] )
