Secure Sockets Layer Protocol

The Homeowner Account Module uses Secure Sockets Layer Protocol (SSL) to protect Internet Communications through server authentication, encryption and data integrity. All information sent over SSL (names, credit card numbers, private user information, account numbers, etc.) is encrypted so that it cannot be read or tempered with during Internet communications.

The certificate currently in use is a strong 2048-Bit SSL certificate issued by DigiCert − the strongest encryption level available. DigiCert provides SSL certificates to over 25,000 customers in more than 115 countries. Some of their customers include:
NASA, U.S. Department of State, Microsoft Corp, Intel Corporation, Harvard University, and others.
