What is a Certificate Authority?
A Certificate Authority manages the certificate lifecycles for people, servers or things. A Certificate Authority (CA) issues, renews, manages and revokes digital certificates.
A CA signs certificates with its private key and is the trust anchor for the issued certificates. The Certificate Authority private key is normally stored in a Hardware Security Model (HSM).
