What's a key pair?

Each SSL Certificate includes a key pair consisting of a public key and a private key. A private key for encoding and a public key for decoding. The private key is installed on the server and should not be shared under any circumstances. The public key is built into the SSL Certificate and is passed to the web browsers.
