<i>What is the purpose of SSL…</i>

SSL provides encryption of the traffic. This helps to minimize the risk of someone capturing and using the data that is being sent. One example of data that you want to protect is the user ID and password combination. In many cases, you also want to protect the data in the files that may be transferred.
