What is a Certificate Authority?

A Certificate Authority (CA) is an organization that issues digital certificates for use by other parties.  (See also, What is a certificate?)  The idea is that the CA acts as a trusted third party to help you verify the Web identity of an organization or individual.  Examples of popular CAs include VeriSign, Entrust, Thawte, and Geotrust.
