By Huseyn Veliyev - Trend:

The national electronic signature certification center of Azerbaijan is eliminating the flaws detected by the WebTrust audit, a source in Azerbaijan's IT market told Trend.

The WebTrust program ensures that certification centers properly verify companies and provide adequate protection for certificate keys.

Passing the WebTrust audit will allow the center to begin issuing digital SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificates.

"The issuance of SSL certificates by the center is scheduled for early 2019," the source said.

The certificates will be issued on a paid basis.

The SSL certificates are most often used in online stores, that is, on the websites where there is a function to order and where the client enters personal data. A special HTTPS protocol is used, which encrypts all the data transmitted in order to ensure that this data is not intercepted at the time of transmission from the browser to the server.
