Public Key Infrastructure Consortium (PKI Consortium)

Trusted digital assets and communication for everyone and everything

Logo of the PKI Consortium

PKI Consortium

The PKI Consortium is comprised of leading organizations that are committed to improve, create and collaborate on generic, industry or use-case specific policies, procedures, best practices, standards and tools that advance trust in assets and communication for everyone and everything using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) as well as the security of the internet in general. By engaging with users, regulators, supervisory bodies and other interested or relying parties the consortium can address actual issues. [learn more…]

Public Key Infrastructure

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) defines the foundation for most modern security systems and provides Confidentiality, Integrity, Authenticity and Non-repudiation. It relies on public key cryptography, a universally accepted asymmetric technology that enables entities to securely communicate using an insecure transport or media, reliably link the data to the signatory and protects the integrity of the data while proving guarantees about the existence of the data at the time of signature creation.

Call for Post-Quantum Cryptography presentations
March 7, 2023 by Paul van Brouwershaven (Entrust) Conference Post-Quantum Cryptography PQC
Call for Presentations We are now accepting proposals for presentations the next Post-Quantum Cryptography Conference of the PKI Consortium, taking place in Europe after the summer of 2023. We’re looking for speakers to share their expertise on a variety of topics related to Post-Quantum Cryptography. Speakers are expected to be physically present at the conference. Speakers are prohibited to promote their products or services. All sessions will live streamed, recorded and be publicly available.

A successful first Post-Quantum Cryptography Conference
March 7, 2023 by Paul van Brouwershaven (Entrust) Conference Post-Quantum Cryptography PQC
The PKI Consortium held its first Post-Quantum Cryptography conference on Friday March 3, in Ottawa, Canada. With a hundred attendees onsite and over six hundred attendees watching the live stream, it was a resounding success.
