SSL certificates are cryptographically generated files used to provide an encrypted channel between a client and a server. Delegated authorities are in charge of validating organization details, issuing the certificates and maintaining the health for the certificates they issued. SSL certificates are most often associated with publicly facing websites and for them to function, need to be accessible via a routable internet address.
Beyond securing your data, certificates are a great way for analysts to connect disparate malicious network infrastructure through identifying overlapping usage of IP addresses. Actors often use the same certificate across multiple attack campaigns to encrypt command and control communication or to make a malicious website look legitimate.
