i needed some clarification regarding openssl...
in openssl , we are able to do encryption and decryption using public/private key pairs..
but why we need to do encryption after sending the data to server....i.e ( actually the encryption should be done at client side...then ,that data can be sent in an insecure channel...) but by using openssl ,encryption is done in server side...so can u please clarify this....

Wth openssl the encryption/decryption is done on both ends. Are you talking about using the PHP openssl library or the web server using openssl for HTTPS?
