Understanding Public SSL Certificates and SBS 2

Our friend Robert Pearman has written an article on understanding SSL certificates, what they do, why they do it, how and where SBS uses them and why you need to update them from the original SHA-1.

Certificates are important to understand. Not only for your server but also for your website. The times have changed and now Google ranks SSL sites higher than non-SSL websites. SHA-1 is broken and it’s time to move on. This is a moving target today so understanding them is a critical skill.
