Module openssl::x509[][src]

Expand description

The standard defining the format of public key certificates.

An X509 certificate binds an identity to a public key, and is either signed by a certificate authority (CA) or self-signed. An entity that gets a hold of a certificate can both verify your identity (via a CA) and encrypt data with the included public key. X509 certificates are used in many Internet protocols, including SSL/TLS, which is the basis for HTTPS, the secure protocol for browsing the web.
