Chapter 11.  Web Services and Security > Set up SSL for security on a web site

11.4. Set up SSL for security on a web site

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connections provide secured transactions between the client browser and the server. SSL is often used to secure credit card transactions and other e-commerce functions, but SSL can be used to secure the traffic moving between the client and server in any situation in which the traffic must be secure from tampering or interception.

Setting up a web site for SSL isn't exactly intuitive, nor does Windows 2000 automate the process with a wizard. It's mostly a manual process that requires attention to detail to accomplish properly. In addition to obtaining and installing a certificate for the site, you also need to configure various settings in the site to make SSL work.
