Certification authorities ensure Web security
Certification authorities are a critical part of securing Internet transactions. As a component of the public key infrastructure (PKI) system, certification authorities serve as a trusted third party and are responsible for verifying the identities of businesses or users wishing to conduct a secure transaction online.
Certification authorities issue digital certificates that vouch for the identities of organizations and provide the public key to be used for encryption purposes. But the trust instilled by digital certificates is only as deep as the trust in the certification authorities that issue them. Businesses seeking to provide customers and users with the most trusted and trouble-free online or e-commerce experience must turn to the most trusted of certification authorities. And as a market-leading certification authority for the last decade, Entrust delivers the products and trusted reputation that organizations require to be competitive.
