    CA = Certificate Authority

    A CA is trusted (you have to trust it) organization that generates and distributes digital certificates for various purposes; server authentication, client authentication, email signing, email encryption, code signing, etc.

    In the context of Java and signing applications, read this for starters: http://www.javaverified.com/faq.jsp

    You can also use your favourite Internet search engine and look up explanations to terms like "CA", "PKI", "root certificate", etc.
