A certification authority is an entity that verifies that a secure (https) website you are trying to connect to are actually who they claim to be and not someone trying to spoof and intercept your secure connection. They perform this by signing and producing digital certificates that automatically get distributed to your devices and web browsers. With these certificates, web browsers can ensure that a secure connection to a website is safe and warn you if something is wrong.
Certificates that automatically get included to your devices come from publicly recognised commercial CAs. Allowing any of these enterprise CAs to sign for us would have made the process eaiser for users. However there is both a domain ownership verification process as well as a recurring fee involved. Both of which are not sustainable as these entities are highly commercialised.
This is both a very good question as well as and important step to take. When you install the certificate, please ensure that its SHA1-generated fingerprint matches the one given below in section Certificate Details > Certificate Fingerprint. This will ensure that you have received a genuine copy of the certificate. WolfKodi Security gives you its assurance that it would only certify and validate certificates and domain names that are intended for its own use. Its certificate assures you that the connection you make to its own server is secure.
Note that the letters are not case sensitive as these values are in hexidecimal. The colons (:) and dashes (-) only serve as a guide for easier reading and they are not required to match.
