Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short, summarize this topic like I'm... Ten years old or a College student
Certificate Transparency (CT) is an Internet security standard for monitoring and auditing the issuance of digital certificates. The standard creates a system of public logs that seek to eventually record all certificates issued by publicly trusted certificate authorities, allowing efficient identification of mistakenly or maliciously issued certificates. Version 2.0 of the Certificate Transparency mechanism, the latest, is described in the experimental RFC 9162, which obsoletes the earlier version 1.0 described in RFC 6962.
