Implementing Public Key Infrastructure - PKI

Public Key Infrastructure - Viability and Success:

Numerous organizations use a PKI infrastructure as a long-term framework for providing digital signature, secure e-mail, and non-repudiation services. Although the industry excitement over PKI has diminished, it is still as viable as ever for implementing secure business solutions.

Many Public Key Infrastructure projects have been extremely successful. The successes include the Chase EC Gateway which allows customers to send payment-instruction and information files to JPMorganChase over the Internet, and Lufthansa's Public Key Infrastructure used to protect its customer-facing Internet portals.

PKI's use is far more widespread than commonly believed. For example, most purchases over the Internet rely on Public Key Infrastructure technology for security.
