  1. The website holder generates the “public key” and “private key”.
  2. The website holder sends the “public key” with some other information like holder name, subject, serial number, signature algorithm, signature, etc to the certificate authority.
  3. The certificate authority verifies the data provided by the Website holder then builds the certificate and finally digitally signs it for the holder. A certificate is a document that contains necessary information about the website holder like the holder's public key, expiration date, name of the certificate holder, and the digital signature of the certificate-issuing authority.
  4. CA send the certificate to the website holder. The holder configures the certificate in the server.
