Introducing first PKI Maturity Model (PKIMM)
August 10, 2023 by Roman Cinkais (3Key Company) Maturity model PKIMM
The PKI Consortium publishes initial draft of the PKI maturity model with related resources to help the industry build mature and future proof PKI including guidelines on how to evaluate the assessment and provide reporting to relying parties. The PKI maturity model is recognized as a standard for evaluation, planning, and comparison between different PKI implementations. In this blog post we are going to introduce the model.

Speakers at this conference include some of the world’s top Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) experts and come from government science agencies, standards bodies, and private organizations at the forefront of this new challenge to digital security. Topics will cover the status of PQC standardization at NIST, ETSI, and IETF, government preparations, migration strategies, etc.

What is the PKI Maturity Model (PKIMM) and how can you contribute?
July 11, 2022 by Roman Cinkais (3Key Company) Maturity model PKIC PKIMM
The PKI Consortium recently established the PKI Maturity Model Working Group to build a PKI maturity model that will be recognized around the globe as a standard for evaluation, planning, and comparison between different PKI implementations. In this blog post we will tell you more about why we are building the model and how you can contribute to it.

An open letter to Apple
March 21, 2022 by PKI Consortium Apple PKIC
We would like to thank and also invite Apple to work more closely with organizations such as the CA/Browser Forum, ETSI and the PKI Consortium to address its concerns, work towards harmonization of policies and to support standardized automation in its software before making any changes on its own. This is because unilaterally enforced policies, especially those that go beyond your own root program, can have a disproportionate impact on PKI implementations, its relying parties and the entire ecosystem.
