Secure Form Data / SSL Certificate with PHP script?
I need to build a form collecting sensitive information that needs to be transferred securely. The site owner has purchased an SSL Certificate and there are form mailer scripts using php available for use.
The question is: I don't think sending info through email via a script is really secure. My understanding is that the form data is secured during the user session on the site - but then what?
How do I get the data from the form on the website to the website owner in a secure fashion?
I have built many forms, but this is a first foray into security of data other than a shopping cart where the data was handled by cc processing through the processing/cc validation through the bank and the shopping cart software.
Can someone walk me through this or offer pointers? The hosting company and a Google search is not helping me much. Maybe I am asking the wrong question.
Thanks for any help!
