What is a Digital Certificate?
A digital certificate is an electronic equivalent of an identification card such
as a passport or driving license. It unequivocally establishes the identity of the
user when exchanging information over the internet.
Digital Certificates are issued only through a valid Certification Authority (CA),
such as e-Mudhra. A digital certificate explicitly associates the identity of an
individual/device with a pair of electronic keys – public and private keys – and
this association is endorsed by the CA.
