PB/INFO/004 (10/06) What is a digital certificate? It is a collection of electronic information, usually containing a statement of the identity of the owner and some additional data. This is generated using cryptography, not to conceal the statement, but to make it hard for anyone other than the owner to forge it. Digital certificates are usually stored as files, either on a computer disk or a smartcard.

PB/INFO/003 (06/06) It is relatively easy to create an electronic mail message that appears, superficially at least, to come from someone else. It is therefore useful to be able to ‘sign’ e-mails, as we use ink signatures on paper documents and letters, to give stronger proof of their origin. There are systems that allow such signatures to be created using certificates and certification agencies, however the most commonly used system, Pretty Good Privacy (PGP), uses a different approach and terminology.
