Modern world’s ever-increasing demand on the governments and enterprises to leverage the
technological advancements in ICT for improving the quality of the service delivery (citizen services and
socio-economic benefits)to their customers/citizens, is resulting in ‘digitally connected governments
and enterprises’ across the world.
This situation in turn, elevated the need for ‘ensuring trust’ in the digital world, in line with regulations,
legal validity and sector-specific (banking, insurance, etc.) compliance requirements. Realizing this need
at the national level in every country, most of the governments across the world initiated large nationwide
programmes, like eID, national PKI, National ID card, etc., towards providing ‘legally valid trust chain’ in
their respective nations.
