A public key infrastructure (PKI) is a comprehensive system, consisting of a set of rules, policies, and methods to provide public key encryption. It also supports the distribution and identification of public encryption keys, due to which, both the users and devices can securely exchange data over networks such as the Internet or any other verified network. PKI is also responsible for the management of public key encryption. The tremendous growth of the Internet over the past decade has been fueled by the prospects of e-commerce and e-business. Moreover, information security has become a critical part of electronic transactions, where the presence of a supporting PKI has emerged as the most viable option. The public key infrastructure market comprises several segments based on the type of solution, deployment model, and end users. The public key infrastructure is widely adopted in various regions including North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
