Interoperability Initiatives

Although standards are an essential element in the ability to develop interoperable products, standards alone are not enough to guarantee multi-vendor interoperability. This is not something that is unique to PKI and enhanced security solutions. Interoperability testing has always been considered an integral part of demonstrating multi-vendor interoperability in almost every technology area.

Entrust has always been strongly committed to multi-vendor interoperability and this is evident through our proven track record of active participation in industry and government sponsored interoperability initiatives, including:

  • the Federal PKI Bridge CA demonstration
  • the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) CA Interoperability pilot
  • the Securities Industry Root CA (SIRCA) proof of concept
  • the Automotive Network Exchange (ANX)
  • the Department of Defense Bridge CA demonstration
  • the Electronic Messaging Association (EMA) Security Challenge
  • PKIX-CMP interoperability testing in association with other vendors and ICSA
  • Identrus
  • PKI Forum

Entrust actively participates directly in the following standards activities/forums:

Within these groups, Entrust often takes a lead role in developing standards that describe secure solutions, and describe techniques facilitating ease of interoperability.
