If you are visiting a Web site that uses a "https" address with IE, you can view the server certificate path of the site to see who is the root CA that signs the last certificate in the certificate path as shown in this tutorial:

1. Run IE and visit www.bestbuy.com Web site. And click "Sign In" on top of the page.

2. Open the server certificate as shown in the previous tutorial.

3. Click "Certificate Path" tab. You see the certificate path (signing chain) showing up.

4. Click the top name in the Certificate Hierarchy list: "GTE CyberTrust Global Root".

5. Click "View Certificate" button to more information about the root CA (Certificate Authority). IE - View Server Certificate Path
