Certificates are used with the HTTPS protocol to authenticate web applications. Certificates are associated with the web applications or services to establish secure information exchange over the internet. A certificate includes data that is used to verify the identity of the server such as organization name, domain name, locality, country and the public key. You can use a self-signed certificate or obtain a certificate from a trusted third-party Certificate Authority (CA) for SSL encryption.
