    PHP/SSL Question

    Hello.

    I am working on an application where I will be working with secure data. I have all my encryption in place, but the form should be processed securely. My host has installed an SSL certificate for me (it is part of my hosting package) but what I am wondering is, what all is required to process my data securely? Do I just have to point the user to the https site to fill out the form, and do the same for the processing script?

    Yep, pointing to the URL on https:// is all you need for the communication to be encrypted. It doesn't say anything for the security or insecurity of the application, though.
