    Is this homework?

    A digital signature certificate is the electronic equivalent of your physical signature on a piece of paper. Since there really isn't any way for you to physically sign a piece of paper when doing an online transaction, if a signature is needed, a digital signature is the only way to do it.

    The "certificate" aspect is how it is verified to be, in fact, your signature. When it is verified to be yours via the certificate, then it can be trusted to do a secure online transaction.
