Web browsers check that an HTTPS connection is signed by a recognized CA. If the connection is self-signed it will be flagged as risky and browser will try to prevent user from visiting the site.

In typical public key infrastructure (PKI) arrangements, a digital signature from a CA attests that a particular public key certificate is valid. Users, or their software on their behalf, check that the private key used to sign some certificate matches the public key in the CA's certificate.
