 In cryptography and computer security, a **self-signed certificate** is an identity certificate that is signed by the same entity whose identity it certifies. This term has nothing to do with the identity of the person or organization that actually performed the signing procedure. In technical terms a self-signed certificate is one signed with its own private key. More specific clarification and details of Self-Signed Certificates can be found in the [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Self-signed_certificate|Self-Signed Certificate Wikipedia Article]]. In cryptography and computer security, a **self-signed certificate** is an identity certificate that is signed by the same entity whose identity it certifies.
