How do certificates aid in security? I know it has something to do with proving identity.
Is there an example or analogy to help understand this?

Indeed, it's more or less a rhetorical question, but I would love to read your advices on this topic.
On my daily job, I have to deal with a lot of Web Server and so, SSL Certificates.
On this job, I also have to deal with security, which is not quite simple if you want a good balance between security and waste of time.
