The SSL/TLS Manager will allow you to generate SSL certificates,
certificate signing requests, and private keys. These are all parts of
using SSL to secure your website. SSL allows you to secure pages on your
site so that information such as logins, credit card numbers, etc are
sent encrypted instead of plain text. It is important to secure your
site’s login areas, shopping areas, and other pages where sensitive
information could be sent over the web.
