How do electronic certificates guarantee ‘trust’?

Please confirm the content of the electronic certificate. The basic certificate is stored on your IC card. When you look at the certification path, the basic certification is guaranteed by an intermediate certification from a higher authority, the Kyoto University Faculty CA (Certification Authority). Furthermore, this certificate is guaranteed by a root certificate (Kyoto University CA) issued by the Kyoto University Electronic Certification Authority. The trustworthiness of the basic certificate is established by verifying this trustworthy path, the period of validity of the certificate, and its revocation situation.
