EO 810 Institutionalizing the Certification Scheme for Digital Signatures

PGMA signs directive on digital signatures
President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo recently signed Executive Order No. 810 entitled "Institutionalizing the Certification Scheme for Digital Signatures and Directing the Application of Digital Signatures in E-Government Services." Issued on 15 June 2009, the EO is expected to address growing concerns over the security and integrity of online transactions in the country. It directs all government agencies and instrumentalities to require the use of digital signatures in their online services to ensure the confidentiality, authenticity, integrity and non-repudiation of e-government transactions, thus giving the transacting public the confidence and peace of mind they need in doing online transactions with government. The EO cites the important roles of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT) in the certification scheme for digital signatures. It designates the DTI, through its Philippine Accreditation Office (PAO), as the Accreditation and Assessment Body; the CICT's National Computer Center (NCC) as the Root Certification Authority (CA) and Government CA; and all government agencies and instrumentalities with e-government services as Registration Authorities (RAs). It is expected that many government projects will be generated with the issuance of the EO, which means that more government services will become readily available and accessible online to the citizenry and the public. This will, likewise, create various business opportunities for the private sector. In time, government entities will have fully-integrated services that will completely address the needs of the transacting public - e-government services that are secure, transparent, efficient and cost-effective. This will make online transactions with government a truly pleasant and worthwhile experience. Also envisioned is a thriving and flourishing e-commerce environment in the Philippines to further promote the widespread use of e-commerce by the public and stimulate the growth of online businesses by encouraging businesses of all shapes and sizes to venture online.

This is consistent with the direction PhilGEPS is actually driving into - Virtual Store and Online Bid Submission. It's already more than a year ago but there seems to be no clear impact to some government agencies.

I hope everyone is strong enough to accept the new age of technology and refrain from speculations of ICT manipulation. Only when we start accepting things can we move on. Of course, if there are really threats of the integrity of the system, it should not stop us from developing its security features. In fact, even the Pentagon can be hacked - tayo pa? Smile

One thing about digital signatures is that the integrity of the document has to be maintained. By that I mean a form that is in "PureEdge" should progress through the process in that very format. Sometimes, out of convenience, some forms end up as a pdf or an image file rendering the document suspect.

Tama ka - every process has its vulnerabilities. However, if most folks maintain integrity it would take effort and clear ill intent on the part of others to violate protocol. That can be best addressed through leadership, not by giving up on technology, or on the other extreme, placing overly restrictive measures hindering the process.
