Any Expert to explain at the high level, how Certificates work.
I know that you can set up Enterprise CA on the Server, which is assumed to assign Certificates to requesting entities.
However it is not clear.
Let's say Web browser when accessing secure websites. If I understand the Secure Websites will have a key pair(Private+Public). Then how does it work the communication between the secure website in one end and the browser in the other end when it comes to Certificates.?

The secured website has a certificate that is issued by a Certificate Authority (CA.) Your browser looks in your PC's registry for the CA's "root" certificate. If it finds one, then the browser trusts any certificates issued by the CA. If it doesn't then it does not.
It's a similar concept to a driver's license which is issued by a known CA - the Dept of Motor Vehicles, which is a standard of identification accepted by most state and federal authorities. If you presented a driver's license that was issue by "Joe's Driving School" - an unknown CA - it would not be accepted.
