Root CCA Certificate / CRL

At eMastersIndia, we recognize the importance of trust and security in the digital realm. That's why we proudly offer digital certificates that adhere to the highest standards set by the Controller of Certifying Authorities (CCA) in India. As per the regulations outlined in section 18(b) of the IT Act, the CCA has established the Root Certifying Authority of India (RCAI).

The RCAI operates in strict compliance with the Act, digitally signing the public keys of Certifying Authorities (CA) across the country. This process enables users in cyberspace to verify the authenticity of certificates issued by licensed CAs. The CCA, utilizing its own private key, certifies the public keys of CAs, instilling confidence and trust in the digital ecosystem.

To further enhance security, the CCA maintains the Repository of Digital Certificates. This repository houses all the certificates issued to CAs in India, ensuring centralized management and easy access to verified certificates.

A root certificate holds significant importance as the top-most certificate in the certificate hierarchy. Its private key is utilized to "sign" other certificates, establishing a chain of trust. Certificates signed by the root certificate, with the "CA" field set to true, inherit the trustworthiness of the root certificate itself. In essence, a signature by a root certificate is akin to the "notarization" of identity in the physical world.
