      TLS is an extension of SSL.

      The differences between the two protocols are very minor and very technical, but they are different standards. TLS uses stronger encryption algorithms and has the ability to work on different ports.

      TLS and SSL cannot exchange or use any information.

      Yes, you can create your own SSL.

        You can use OpenSSL program to create your own SSL certificate for encrypted communication over the internet. Such self made SSL certificates are called as Self-signed SSL Certificates.

          SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) cannot be operated with one another. They are similar in terms of security. Both are Internet security protocols and take care of the data to be encrypted and on;y then transmitted over the Internet.The major difference is that TLS allows secure as-well-as insecure connections over the same port whereas SSL requires a designated secure port.

            When we talk about the difference between SSL and TLS, the main difference is the fact that TLS connections start with insecure connections to the server and later switch to secure connections after the connection between the server and the client is successful. Whereas, SSL connections proceed with the secured communications after they begin with security.

              Thanks James... Do the Self-signed SSL Certificates work as effectively as the company SSL?

                Self-signed certificates cannot be compared with the SSL certificates made by the companies. The SSL certificates made by the company are used by many and it can be considered as a tried and tested solution. When it comes to Self-signed certificates, it will be designed and used by you and hence you cannot consider it safe and reliable enough.

                    SSL is definitely more preferred over TLS and the reason for this is the fact that it is considered to be more secured that TLS.

                      Hi Carrick,
                      Yes SSL certificate is anytime more secure than TSL.

                        Yes, The main purpose of using SSL and TLS is security over the internet and SSL is certainly more secured and hence it is the most preferred in comparison to TLS.

                          What things do i need to install an SSL Certificate? And what are the steps to do it?

                            While installing the SSL certificate mostly you will need to generate the Key file & Certificate Signing Request (CSR). If you don't have time or knowledge about it, then your web host can do that for you.

                            Please correct me i am wrong anywhere....

                              I would suggest you to purchase an SSL certificate from a Web hosting provider as they will install it for you and you will not have to go through all the steps required to install an SSL certificate. However, it is better if you confirm with your web hosting provider before you purchase the SSL certificate.
