Frequently Asked Questions
How does SSL protect you?
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protects data in three key ways:
- Authentication ensures that you are communicating with the correct server. This prevents another computer from impersonating Merrimack Valley Credit Union.
- Encryption scrambles transferred data.
- Data integrity verifies that the information sent by you to the Credit Union was not altered during the transfer. The system detects if data was added or deleted after you sent the message. If any tampering has occurred, the connection is dropped.
