MUCH MORE THAN JUST A TRUSTED ROOT CA
A unique Trust Model

OISTE delegates on the Swiss company WISeKey SA the operation of the systems and infrastructures supporting the Trust Model.

WISEKEY’S PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
PKI is much more than just technology
A typical PKI project is likely to be more complex than previous experience of typical IT projects may suggest. As well as project management, technical and operational aspects, there are many policy, legal and security issues which must not be neglected.
By following a structured methodology based on practical experience, many of the potential traps and pitfalls can be avoided. The risks to the business and the project are reduced and those that remain are quantified at an early stage. It has been our experience that the major cost of a PKI lies not in the technology but in the services needed to implement the solution. There is a need to ensure that the benefits from this investment are realized in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.
