PKI is the best solution available today which addresses the key issues of authentication, confidentiality, integrity and non-repudiation required for secure e-commerce transactions.” is one of the key conclusions of IDA report published in February 2001

Though PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) seems quite a common term used in the IT security industry, this talk provided even a more deeper insight to how PKI has evolved, from mple private-public key pairs to complexed encryption techniques with the usage of digital certificates and hashing.

Also, the speaker, Mr Foo Jong Ai, CEO of Netrust, presented on how PKI is actually used in almost every business function in Singapore, from government-encrypted emails to secure B2B transactions, and even the Singapore ePassport. The talk was truly an eye-opener and such knowledge could be obtained by attending such talks as this.
