Abstract: Enormous flexibility of the Internet has made possible what is popularly called “e-commerce” which has made inroads in the traditional methods of business management. All the facets of the business transaction with which we are accustomed in physical environment can be now executed over the Internet including, on-line advertising, on-line ordering, publishing, banking, investment, auction, and professional services. In discussing these aspects of the internet’s role a distinction can be drawn between three forms of transaction. In the first category, as epitomized by the on-line sale of books, Internet businesses allow contracts of sale to be entered into electronically, with the goods involved being delivered using traditional mechanisms. Internet facilitating e-commerce has besides, great advantages; posed many threats because of its being what is popularly called “faceless and borderless”. For instance, sending an e-mail message (offer here) does not require disclosure of the identity any more, e-mail message being like an open post card can be intercepted at any place on line, modified, altered, changed and been made to appear to have come from a person other than the actual sender and what is worst, recipient cannot detect it. Thus, securing issues like Authentication, Confidentiality, Integrity, and Non-repudiation etc have been answered. In order to elucidate the security concern, a separate chapter has been made in this work to discuss the same.
