Another interaction.

Alice visits a bank's web site.  The certificate of that site is
issued by a CA that is not part of the set of root certificates that
Alice's browser trusts.  Alice is asked whether she wants to accept
this certificate.

Motivates: Practices for metainformation about CA certificates. 

Cheers,
