I know it’s tough out there, and I know, it’s easier for men than women. Take it for what’s it worth -- free advice from one on the other end. First, ignore any overture that isn't polite and genuine and well-written. That's just some lazy slob who probably can’t write or has decided you are not worth the time to write. Second: Put some honest effort into picking your pictures. If you can't take or own three nice, normal pictures of yourself, then either you have no friends or you’re just lazy or you don't care. I auto skip anyone with only one picture no matter how beautiful. Also be honest -- don’t post pictures that will disappoint in real life. Don't put up three photos where you look great and one photo where you look like you slept with pigs in a haystack the whole night with the caption..." I slept in a haystack all night!

While there are detail differences between SSL and TLS the following descriptions apply to both protocols.

Note: SSLv2 was banned by RFC 6176 which contains a dire list of its shortcomings.

You can either buy an SSL (X.509) certificate or generate your own (a self-signed certificate) for testing or, depending on the application, even in a production environment.

Good news: If you self-sign your certificates you may save a ton of money.

For we, mere mortals, its chief merit may be that it's shorter (3 versus 4 syllables).

The current guide includes SSL, TLS, some detail about X.509 and its usage as well as some explanation about certificate types, including EV certificates, and the trust process.

The term 'SSL certificate' has persisted, and will likely persist for the foreseable future, because given the choice of saying 'SSL' or 'X.509' the former tends to roll off the tongue more comfortably.

Doubtless a linguistic expert could wax lyrical over the S sound versus the X sound.

Bad news: If you self-sign your certificates nobody but you and your close family (perhaps) may trust them.

But before you shell out all that filthy lucre for a bright, shiny new X.509 (SSL) certificate or the even more expensive EV SSL (X.509) certificate you might want to know what they do and how they do it.

What are colloquially known as SSL certificates should be referred to as X.509 certificates.
