    What is CA signed certificate and How to get that??

     Bill Nelson 

    A CA signed certificate is a certificate that has been signed by a “trusted” Certificate Authority. “Trusted” means that the CA has gone through a vetting process that in the end resulted in their name being listed in your client as someone that is trustworthy and any certificates that are issued by them are also trustworthy. If the CA/certificate is trusted, then you wont see the popup box or web page (as in the case of a browser) asking if you want to proceed to the untrusted site.

    CA certificates are issued by companies such as DigiCert, GeoTrust, GoDaddy, Entrust, etc.

    If you don’t care about the trust (i.e. your clients are internal or you are in development), then you could use a “self-signed certificate” instead. They are perfectly valid purposeful certificates; they simply have not been entered into the client’s trust database.


    Thank you Bill Nelson for above information.
