NAIROBI, KENYA, March 27, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — eMudhra, a pioneering Electronic Certification Service Provider (E-CSP) licensed under CA Kenya, has affirmed its deep commitment to enhancing the Digital Trust and Signature ecosystem at the National Public Key Infrastructure (NPKI) Forum organized by Communications Authority of Kenya, held on March 19, 2024, in Kenya. The event, which convened leading figures and stakeholders in digital trust and security, provided a vibrant platform for discourse on the future of digital trust ecosystems and the critical role of E-CSPs.

As an increasing number of digital services are rolled out in Kenya, the need to ease the digital signature process, and build a Robust Foundation around Identity and Digital Trust has risen to prominence in Kenya. With several thousand services already live on a digital platform, and more buzz around Nationwide Digitization, Kenya is on the cusp of a Digital revolution with technology at the center of it.

“We are at a critical juncture in the evolution of digital trust,” stated Arvind Srinivasan, Executive Vice President, eMudhra. “We at eMudhra are working on building solutions ground-up from a deep-rooted understanding of the local landscape. In this endeavor, we intend to roll out seamless signing solutions for the Country over time and work with key stakeholders to ensure that we not only drive Digital efficiency, but do so with a sharp focus on Cybersecurity, which is starting to play a bigger role these days.”

The forum paved the way for advancement in the field of mutual trust and recognition between countries with the culmination of the African Union of Digital Trust bringing together several countries in Africa on a common platform to discuss the future of digital signatures, and how they are recognized between countries. Interestingly, the event also paved the way for greater collaboration between eMudhra and ICTA wherein eMudhra showcased how digital signatures issued from Kenya’s National PKI Systems could work seamlessly on eMudhra’s flagship Digital Signature Workflow platform, emSigner.

Dr. Vincent Ngundi, Ph.D., Cybersecurity Acting Director and Head of The National KE-CIRT/CC at the Communications Authority of Kenya, emphasized the importance of collaboration in enhancing digital trust. “The journey towards a secure and trusted digital ecosystem is complex and requires the concerted effort of all stakeholders, including E-CSPs like eMudhra. Together, we can overcome the challenges of digital transformation and establish a robust infrastructure for digital trust in Kenya and beyond.”

eMudhra’s active participation in the NPKI Forum underscores its dedication to advancing digital trust and security globally. The company’s innovative approach and commitment to excellence in digital certification are pivotal in shaping a secure and inclusive future for digital economies, particularly in Africa.

As Kenya continues to fast-track its digital transformation agenda, eMudhra stands as a key ally in fostering digital trust and ensuring success of the national PKI ecosystem.
