The website (www.swedishmatch.ch) uses a protocol for secure data transfer called SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), developed by Netscape Communications.
SSL uses digital certificates to verify the sender and recipient of the data transfer. The certificates used on the website are issued by Verisign. The website uses Secure Site Pro certificates with EV, which provides the strongest encryption available for Microsoft and other browsers. The Secure Site Pro certificate with EV uses 256-bit encryption and thus supports all the latest functions in modern web browsers, such as “green” address fields used to indicate a secure communication.
