If you are visiting a Web site that uses a "https" address with Google Chrome, 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. Visit https://www.paypal.com Web site with Google Chrome.

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

3. Click "Certification Path" tab. You see 3 certificates displayed in a tree list.

4. Double-click the top name in the Certificate Hierarchy list: "VeriSign Class 3 Public Primary Certification Authority - G5" You see the root CA's certificate displayed.
