2. A public key is sent by a web server along with its SSL certificate

3. The browser then verifies that the certificate is issued by a trusted source and that the certificate is valid

4. Upon confirmation, the public key is then used by a web browser to encrypt a random symmetric encryption key and is transmitted to the server with the URL that is encrypted and required along with the other encrypted http data.

5. The symmetric key is then decrypted by a web server using its private key and the server then uses the symmetric key to decrypt the http data and URL.

6. The requested html document and http data is then transmitted by the web server encrypted with the symmetric key.

7. And finally the http data and html document is decrypted by the browser using the symmetric key and the information is displayed.
