The Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) is to capitalise in Digital Certificate infrastructure, as it enlists the services of GlobalSign and Vietnam Digital Signature Authentication Corporation (V-SIGN) with the Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Group (VNPT). GlobalSign, a digital sertificate service operator, partnered with V-SIGN, the co-operator of the only public Certificate Authority (CA) for government in Vietnam licensed under Vietnamese electronic signature law, with the help of the VNPT alliance, the only digital authentication service provider licensed under Vietnamese electronic signature law to operate a public CA, to provide substantial CA operations.
As the government invests significantly in the development and deployment of e-Government solutions, MIC has a number of projects underway and their Digital Certificate infrastructure is essential to providing e-Government security.
Under the service agreement V-SIGN will be provided with Certificate Authority operational support and wide-ranging consultation services, as it continues to be responsible for government authentication services.
GlobalSign has a proven track record, as it has previously provided e-Government solutions for Belgium and New Zealand.
