In cryptography and computer security, a root certificate is a public
key certificate that identifies a root certificate authority (CA).[1]
Root certificates are self-signed and form the basis of an X.509-based
public key infrastructure (PKI).

So in my case, I have a root CA certificate for our organisition and
many internal sites have a certificate issued from this CA.
