SSL is a set of rules followed by computers connected to the Internet. These rules include
There are two levels of encryption: 40-bit and 128-bit. With 40-bit encryption, there are billions of possible keys to decipher the coded information, and only one of them works. Someone intercepting the information would have to find the right key – a nearly impossible task.
With 128-bit encryption, there are 300 billion trillion times as many keys as with 40-bit encryption. It is virtually impossible for an unauthorized party to find the right key, even if they are equipped with the best computers.
In-Venice.com implements 128-bit encryption through our partner GeoTrust. This is currently the highest standard of security available on the Internet and ensures that any information, which you submit including your credit card details, will remain completely confidential.
