NASIRE Meets on Digital Signatures

The National Association of State Information Resource Executives (NASIRE) is meeting this week in San Francisco with private-sector companies to discuss the need for standard digital signature and certification authority. Standardization is crucial to state electronic commerce initiatives. Along with NASIRE members, representatives from the National Association of State Purchasing Officials and the National Association of Secretaries of State are expected to attend the meeting. Specifically, discussions will focus on "whether an industry consortium should be formed to set guidelines and possibly act as an accreditor of certification authorities," according to a NASIRE notice on the meeting.
