Towards a PKI.

The General Services Administration (GSA) has given preliminary approval to one of three vendors to begin supplying the government agency with digital certificates in its quest to build a public key infrastructure and comply with the Government Paperwork Elimination Act. The Digital Signature Trust Company and other vendors that maintain compliance under a contract awarded last fall will provide identification, authentication, and nonrepudiation via digital signature technology as a means for individuals and business entities to be authenticated when accessing, retrieving, and submitting information with the government. Final approval is expected in the fall.
