Role of PKI in Trust Service Providers
- Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) serves as the foundational framework
- Underpins the operations and credibility of Trust Service Providers (TSPs) and Qualified Trust Service Providers (QTSPs).
- Without PKI, the authentication, encryption, and digital signature mechanisms that form the backbone of trust services would not be feasible.
- It establishes the necessary trust and reliability that enable TSPs and QTSPs to offer secure and legally recognized electronic trust services within the European Union and beyond.
