Personal Digital Certificate

For protection, identification and data transmission, WebMoney Transfer Light uses personal digital certificates and standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). Both Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer support SSL, and many Web sites use this protocol to obtain confidential user information. By convention, URLs that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http:. SSL creates a secure connection between a client and a server, over which any amount of data can be sent securely.

A personal digital certificate identifies a WMID user. The identification is based on the private key that is stored on the own computer of the personal certificate holder.

SSL requires a high level of security. High encryption is included in the latest versions of the Internet Explorer browser. If you are running an earlier version of Internet Explorer without 128-bit encryption, you can download the latest version of Internet Explorer from the Internet Explorer Download page. If you are using Netscape Navigator, you should update it to 128-bit SSL.
