Digital India Vision

PKI and digital signatures form the authentication backbone for all these initiatives. PKI in India is controlled by the Controller of Certifying Authorities, Ministry of Information technology, Government of India. Digital Signature Certificate for authentication is issued by the Certifying Authorities (CAs). While digitization has commenced in various department indicated above, complete digitization in public and private sector is only possible with the use of Digital Signature Certificates (DSC) and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
