Certificates are digital identification documents that allow both servers and clients to authenticate each other. A certificate file has a .crt extension. Server certificates contain information about your company and the organization that issued the certificate (such as Verisign or Thawte) while client certificates contain information about the user and the organization that signed the certificate. (Refer to Site Certificates and Keys for more information about getting/setting a Site's certificates.)
