Symantec Corporation (NASDAQ:SYMC) has made an innovative discovery. This new technology upgrades the security-levels that are provided by the SSL certificates. It will now provide its customers an SSL certificate which will be created with the use of multiple algorithms. These will include digital Signature Algorithm (DCA) and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC). This is very different from the traditional technologies that exists today and is also 10,000 times more secure. Most websites whether large or small give precedence to customer data information security, and are always in efforts to protect transaction information that have taken place via their systems.
SSL certificates are what ensure website security. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) now wants that websites migrate to 2048-bit from the existing RSA 1024-bit, by 1 Jan 2014.
