Secure Information Submission Using A FrontPage 2000 Form

I'm using FrontPage 2000 and have had a request to develop a web site that, among other things, will allow users to sign up for a service, which requires their credit card number.

Can FrontPage be used to design a form that will allow the secure submission of information?

I have the web site server on site, which is running NT4.0 Service Pak 6 and IIS.  It is also running the FrontPage Server Extensions.  My primary job is not web site design and I need a little help in determining whether this can be done.

Thanks

Well, you need to talk to the server administrator and see if they support SSL.

OR

see if the client is ready to buy a security certificate (I use thwate, personally).

Then you just need to tell FP to go to https://yourdomainname.com

oops...and I forgot to mention.

Coding for secure pages is EXACTLY the same as for other pages...it is just the https in the address (URL) that makes the difference.

As I mentioned, I have the site server on my site.  We are a small business, but have chosen to support our own web sites.  Consequently, I have all of the equipment (the site server, mail server and proxy server for my firewall) all right here.  I am also the site administrator, but have no experience with secure sites.

Does SSL simply require a change to my existing site server configuration?  I've heard of SSL, but don't know what is required i.e. additional software, configuration changes, etc.

To start to learn more about SSL (Secure Socket Layer) try this link:

And on this page the text indicates that installation instructions come with your certificate:

I've visited the links and printed the pages.  Now, I have to read through it.  On the surface, it appears to be what I want.  I'll let you know asap.

Thanks.

Sorry to take so long.  Seems that everyone wants their projects completed yesterday.

I did read through the information and it appears to be what I need.  I need to do some additional homework on the site server side, but it certainly appears to be doable.

Thanks for your help.

Glad to help.

What would it have taken to earn an A?  I would tried to assist further had you asked for it.

An A would have taken a step-by-step "how to" approach.  Since this topic is new to me, I didn't know what was needed or even what questions to ask.  

Thanks, again.
