Bank of Alma Online Banking Security Notice

The Bank of Alma’s Online Banking website uses the SSL protocol for security. SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, an encryption technology that was created by Netscape.  SSL creates an encrypted connection between a web server and your computer’s web browser allowing for private information to be transmitted without the problems of eavesdropping, data tampering, or message forgery. The use of an SSL server certificate on a website is usually indicated by a padlock icon in a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Secure transmission of sensitive information on a web site such as credit card numbers or personal information requires SSL encryption.  In order to use the SSL protocol, a web server requires the use of an SSL certificate. SSL certificates are provided by Certification Authorities (CA). A certificate authority is an entity which issues digital certificates to organizations after validating the existence and viability of the organization.  This website uses DigiCert as the CA.
