So, how to make commercial transactions in a secure way, when you are using the online medium? Just as there are counter measures to tackle miscreants and ensure the safety of trade and commerce in real-time world there has been a parallel development in technology that make internet businesses not only viable but also e-commerce “the” pliable and secured mode for commercial transaction. The “E” effect of the web, overrides the snags and hitches that are still evident in the real-time world. The security protocols of the internet ensure that the data sent and received are encrypted and decrypted respectively, thus maintaining the integrity and validity of the data. What came into being as one of the first internet protocols, was the HTTP(encrypting the contents of the message relayed from the browser(user-end) to the server). As an offshoot of HTTP was SHTTP giving clients more discretion on the type of encryption to use. Netscape then came out with its brain child in the way of SSL (Secure Sockets layer), which worked more at the ground-level(at the transport layer)(encrypting the entire data-stream as a whole, independent of the transmission protocol), whereas the previous protocols worked at the application layer. The next player was Mircosoft’s PCT (Private communication technology) as an enhanced version of SSL, plugging the loopholes present in SSL. As you are well aware that all commercial transactions need to be financed, they should be routed through the gateway of the network of banks. For instance, while using credit/debit cards for your transactions, the initiation triggered from your end, should get an acknowledgement from the concerned banker(s), to allow the further processing of the transaction. After many milestones, through alliances between application providers and the bankers, and a series of protocol technologies (credit card authorities), the Visa/MasterCard SET(Secure Electronic Transactions) emerged as a convergence of the “piecemeal” solutions for payment mediation.
