Certification Authorities are entities that issue and manage digital certificates. A digital certificate contains the private key and identity information of its owner. Certification authorities digitally sign certificates that they issue, using their private key to impart authenticity to digital certificates.
Certification Authorities form the backbone of Public Key Infrastructure(PKI), a framework for securing E-commerce applications. If the security of a Certification Authority is compromised, it will result in the breakdown of the entire PKI system and consequently the online transactions and contracts that rely on them.
Given the importance of issuing and managing digital certificates effectively, it is critical for Trusted Third Parties and enterprises to implement a fully secure and reliable Certification Authority to protect the security of their clients.
