3 Gov’t Entities Approved by NCDC As Digital Certification Providers

Three government entities were recently approved as providers of government digital certification services. They were approved after they had successfully fulfilled the requirements of the National Center for Digital Certification (NCDC), affiliated with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. These entities include The Saudi Fund for Development, King Khalid Eye Specialist Hospital and General Commission for Survey.

This approval enables the three entities to issue digital certificates as well as to avail of other relevant services, such as verification of identity, digital signature, data encryption, and fixing shortcomings, like the difficulty of verifying the identities of the parties transacting electronically.

The NCDC is working to provide a complete ecosystem for the administration of the public key infrastructure (PKI) on which all the electronic services, like e-commerce and e-Government, are based. “PKI” enables online transactors, whether Government agencies, citizens or businesses, to perform all electronic transactions with confidentiality and trustworthiness.
