The PRIMARY goal of a web site certificate is:
authentication of the web site that will be surfed.
authentication of the user who surfs through that site.
preventing surfing of the web site by hackers.
the same purpose as that of a digital certificate.
Authenticating the site to be surfed is the primary goal of a web certificate. Authentication of a user
is achieved through passwords and not by a web site certificate. The site certificate does not
prevent hacking nor does it authenticate a person.
