PKI Member Section Launches Survey to Measure Cost of Implementation

The OASIS PKI Member Section is pleased to announces the third in a

environment through public-key encryption and digital signature
services. This new survey focuses on financial benefits and attempts to
measure the relative costs of different PKI implementations.  The Member
Section encourages all vendors and implementers of PKI projects to
participate in this critical survey that will influence the future
direction of the OASIS PKI work. The
survey will be completed within 60 days. An analysis of the results will
