A Certificate authority (or Certification authority (CA)) is a company that issues digital certificates for other parties. Such certificates can be used to create digital signatures and public-private keys. The certification authority issues a public key certificate, which attests that the public key belongs to a particular person, company or any other entity as provided in the certificate.

An SSL certificate provides secure transactions of personal information of web-site's visitors.

The module can be used for the Certificate Authorities management: a provider may add new authorities, edit and delete existing ones. You can also create and manage SSL templates.
