Quoted in the IT Business Edge

http://www.itbusinessedge.com/cm/blogs/poremba/trustworthy-ssl-certificates/?cs=42832

As Sorin Mustaca, manager of international software development at Avira, explained to me:

A Certificate Authority is, by common understanding, an entity having a trust level beyond any doubt. This means that in the case of digital certificates, a CA can generate certificates which are trusted by all parties involved in a communication. Any entity, private or corporate, is allowed to request such a digital certificate, the only proof required is an official identification document. This means that such a certificate can only guarantee that the entity you are communicating with is who she pretends to be. It doesn’t guarantee that the owner of the certificate can be trusted.
