CA – Certification Authority

The CA (Certification Authority) is a trusted body that confirms the validity and identity of entities involved in public key exchange. As the userÕs digital certificate is the only means by which entities may trust each other, the CA must be officially recognized. This is typically done by a government body authorizing a CA prior to its instigation. A well known CA, used by many commercial organizations, is Verisign.
