What is a public/private key pair?

Encryption is a mathematical process of coding and decoding information. Each SSL Certificate contains a public/private key pair: a private key with the code and a public key used to decode it. The private key is installed on the server and never shared with anyone. The public key is incorporated into the SSL certificate and shared with web browsers.
