SSL and Autherize.net

I got Autherize.net up and running and everything is working great. Test cards work and normal credit cards work great.

 

Since I am kind of new at this whole shopping cart thing. I don't understand SSL all that well.

 

I know it's an encryption, but what is it, how do I get it, and how to I make it work with my server, shopping cart and Autherize.net?

 

Do I need to setup a sub domain for it?

 

Currently it looks like my payment pages are working just fine WITHOUT SSL. In other words http:// and not https://

 

I was wondering if someone could explain to me the process of getting SSL to work with OsCommerce and Autherize.net and what I need to do to get this enable, or installed.

 

I don't know anything about it really...

Basically ssl encrypts the data when it is traveling between the server and the customers computer so that their cc and personal info cannot be hijacked.

 

Most cc processors including I thought authorize.net require this before you are allowed to accept cc payments so you might want to check on that.

 

A lot of hosts have a shared certificate you can use but unless you are really strapped for cash I would get your own as they are not really that expensive. The reason I suggest this is that when using a shared certificate the url will change to something that has nothing to do with your company but is an extension of the server or hosting name. If you have your own certificate the url will stay your domain name only with the https:

 

You can do a search for ssl certificates and find lots of them at reasonable prices. I would check with your hosting company and find out the exact process for having them installed and what if any additional cost are involved (installation, dedicated ip address etc. ) Many hosts can give you a complete package so that is something to look into also.

The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

Do you have a problem? Have you checked out Common Problems?

There are many very useful osC Contributions

Are you having trouble with a installed contribution? Have you checked out the support thread found Here

BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP!!! You did backup, right??
