What is a Website Certificate?
A "Web site certificate" states that a specific Web site is
secure and genuine. It protects against other Web sites assuming the identity of
the original secure site. A secure encrypted connection (i.e.. https:// instead
of http://) between the your computer and the web site protects against hackers
