ASC X9 Revives PKI Working Group To Address New Public Key Infrastructure Needs

“The Accredited Standards Committee X9 Inc. ( X9 ), a non-profit organization that develops standards for the financial services industry, has reconstituted X9F5, the working group that originally developed the standards on which modern Public Key Infrastructures (PKIs) are based. The decision by the X9 board was based upon the recent findings of an X9 PKI Study Group, which recommended that X9F5 be tasked with creating new PKI standards based on use cases and requirements developed and maintained specifically for the financial services industry.”
