Can I suggest that you use PGP to send the information encrypted. There is
a wonderful script which can be found here:
We use this on various sites to encrypt sensitive information
In terms of a server certificate, you will need this to protect the client
from entering information into a form on the site. Server certs encrypt the
traffic between the browser and the server.
Hope this helps
