A Certificate Authority System Generates Certificates Based Upon Your Criteria

In order to create digital certificates for your business organization you will need a certificate authority system. This type of system generates certificates based upon the information you enter during the creation processes. For example, if you want to create a digital signature, you will need to include information which is user specific in order to have a signature embedded into the certificate.

Your Certificate Authority System Often Creates Two Certificates for Each Request

Any time you create digital certificates using your certificate authority system you will frequently end up with two certificates. One certificate is issued to the person who requested or requires the certificate. This certificate contains their private key and should never be shared with anyone else. The other certificate can be issued to anyone inside or outside your organization that is working with your employee. This certificate contains a public key and ensures secure communications are maintained.
