How does an SSL certificate look like?

I have never seen one since I always have it set up for me.


Is it a file?


How does basically the whole philosophy work?


Sorry for the questions but I think this is an interesting topic for many of us.

Something very similar to that. It is basically just a text file that contains

encrypted key data. You have one for the server and one for the domain.

Your webserver loads those keys whenever it starts.


Idea is the server/browser connection gets encrypted, all data is 'garbage' so noone can read it

(which is bull as anything gets cracked and so did SSL long time ago)
