Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan.10 / Trend H. Valiyev /
Introducing digital signatures will accelerate the process of electronic interaction and the appearance of new e-services in Azerbaijan, SayberNet CEO Ilham Namazov told Trend.
SayberNet jointly with the Azerbaijani Ministry of Communications and Information Technology is working on the practical implementation of digital signature in Azerbaijan.
According to Namazov, at present, work is underway to establish a center to provide information services through a single portal, "e-government", which aims at consolidating existing information bases and systems built on different platforms.
The portal will be a key instrument supporting the work with citizens and public and private sector. Work on creating the portal "e-Government" is being implemented jointly with the Azerbaijani Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies.
The creation of the portal "e-government" will use the principle of X-Road, which is designed to unite the existing information bases and systems built on different platforms.
As Namazov said earlier after the completion of preparatory work, scheduled for the end of the first quarter of the next year, the portal "e-government" will be gradually connected to the ministries and departments of the Republic. Criteria for their selection will depend on the willingness of IT-infrastructure of these agencies.
Creation of the portal will reduce the number of requested documents from the citizens due to the fact that the agencies will interact with each other in an electronic form.
For close cooperation of agencies with each other, there must be digital signature, center for which will be ready in the near future. The Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies of Azerbaijan has already completed work on the building a center for issuing electronic signatures, which, will be ready for trial operation in the near future.
