Transport Security Layer Protection
Transport Layer Security (TLS) to secure all connections to LampsUSA. TLS is an encryption protocol used to secure communications over the internet. When a padlock icon is displayed in the address bar of your browser next to a URL that starts with https://, then the connection uses TLS. We support version TLS 1.2 (or higher) of the TLS protocol. TLS technology encrypts, or scrambles, any sensitive information traveling over the Internet. TLS replaced the older SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol, the terms TLS and SSL are still used interchangeably. This site employs the same protection as the most secure e-commerce sites today. So you can feel secure in shopping online with LampsUSA.
What's does "Secure Web Site" mean?
Web browsers can operate in "normal" mode and in "secure" mode. You can tell which mode your browser is in by looking at the toolbar at the top of the browser window. If you see a broken key, or an open padlock, you are in normal mode. If the key is whole, or the padlock is closed, you are in "secure" mode. When you browse the internet in "normal" mode, all of the information you type into your browser and all the information the Web site sends to you are visible to eavesdroppers. When your browser is in "secure" mode it encrypts all the information between itself and the server. Encrypted information looks like meaningless garbage to eavesdroppers, so your personal information is secure. It is important to remember that only the transaction part of an internet site needs to be secure. If you enter a site and they're still in the "normal" mode, do not assume the transactional capabilites are insecure.
What is a Digital Certificate?
A digital certificate contains the name of a company, Web site or individual, along with a cryptographic key that can be used to encrypt information that must be sent to that individual. When your browser switches into secure mode, it asks the Web site to present its certificate. The browser decides whether or not it trusts the certificate by looking at who issued it. If the browser trusts the certificate, then it will encrypt all communications with that Web site, using the cryptographic key in the certificate.
