Hong Kong Post Signed MOU with KoreaHongkong Post signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Korea Information Certificate Authority here Friday to provide a framework of cooperation for exploring the establishment of a reliable and seamless cross-border certification system.
This MOU signifies Hongkong Post's initiative in promoting cross-border cooperation with reputable public Certification Authorities (CA) in the world.
Allan Chiang, acting postmaster general, said, "This kind of cross-border cooperation to develop a widely recognized Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) system will enhance our position as a leading Internet hub and help promote e-commerce in the region."
According to the MOU, the parties will explore the possibility of establishing a common set of certification policies and practices as well as promoting an open and seamless infrastructure so as to ensure interoperability between the certification authorities.
In addition, they will explore joint procurement and development of open PKI based applications to facilitate secure cross-border transactions over the Internet.
Since January 2000, Hongkong Post has been acting as the first and the only public recognized CA in Hong Kong, maintaining a digital certificate repository to allow the public to verify the validity of the digital certificates issued by Hongkong Post.
The digital certificate issued by Hongkong Post, officially known as the e-Cert, allows people to authenticate the identity of the digital certificate holders on the Internet. The CA services provide a secure and trusted e-commerce environment.
