Comtrust, the e-solutions business unit of Etisalat, recently held a complimentary training session at the Etisalat Academy in Dubai. The three-day seminar offered the United Arab Emirates (UAE)’s higher education community, including representatives from Zayed University, UAE University and the Ajman University of Science and Technology, an insight into the regional development of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
Comtrust says it held the course to ensure both students and teachers of university Information Technology (IT) faculties were aware of the region’s recent e-security developments. The session was based upon Comtrust’s recently launched commercial PKI training courses, but where tailored to the specific needs of the education segment.
PKI, according to Comtrust, is the globally recognized, industry standard protocol to Internet security threats. PKI seeks to replicate the security measures of the physical world within the virtual world of the Internet. It is a comprehensive system consisting of software applications, encryption methods and technologies designed to ensure the identification and authentication of all parties involved in a single online transaction. — (menareport.com)
