Security Certificate - Definition

A Security Certificate is a chunk of information, often stored as a text file, that is used by the SSL Protocol to establish a secure connection. A Security Certificate contains information about whom it belongs to, who it was issued by, valid dates, a unique serial number or other unique identifying identification that can be used to verify the contents of the certificate. In order for an SSL connection to be created, both sides must have a valid Security Certificate, which is also called a Digital ID.
