The fingerprint of a CA certificate is the string of alphanumeric characters that results from an MD5 hash of the whole CA certificate. Entities receiving a CA certificate can verify its authenticity by comparing it to its known fingerprint. This authentication is intended to ensure the integrity of communication sessions by preventing "man-in-the-middle" attacks.
