It’s kind of a procedure that undertakes the transmission of some specific data to a specific location. This specific socket lock makes it perfectly secure that there exists a safe and protected assembly or linking between the users and the website and that bonding is intact or not. In order to ensure the safe transmission of data from the user's computer to the website server, this procedure of secure socket lock or simply SSL provides the necessary communication for this to take place.
