It also provides for other citizens information safety in using the e-Government's various internet services.

Two Main Goals of this Certificate Authority are:

To plan and set up a Certificate Authority so as to provide a reliable information security mechanism

The Government Public Key Infrastructure (GPKI) is an authentication management stratum structure. The Government Root CA (GRCA) under the Research, Development and Evaluation Commission of the Executive Yuan is the Trust Anchor of the entire GPKI. It issues Certificates of Authentication to GPKI's subordinate CA. This Center belongs to GPKI's Level 1 Subordinate CA, and follows GPKI's Certificate Policy (CP). It issues and manages public certificates for citizens of our nation who are under 18 years of age in accordance with the requirements of the third grade guarantee.

Government Public Key Infrastructure

In standard Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), CA plays the role of ensuring the correctness of encrypting the public key. To set up and maintain a reliable information security mechanism is the focus in planning this center

To advance e-Government's applications development, thereby enhancing our nation's competitiveness

The electronic certificates infrastructure of the e-Government embraces PKI and PMI. It provides Public-Key Certificate and Attribute Certificate services for G2G, G2B and G2C identification and certification.

In PMI development relevant to citizens, the competent department, in line with respective power and responsibility, can set up AA and RA to issue Attribute Certificates for citizens. This will include following electronic licenses and certificates:

  • Personnel identification cards: Civil servants identification, students identification, institution personnel identification, citizens identification, membership identification, and so on.
