It is necessary to expand the market of digital signature certification services to the banking and financial sectors

Commenting on the digital signature certification service market, a representative of the National Electronic Authentication Center (NEAC) said that the market currently has 15 CAs with 14 active CAs. By the end of the first quarter of 2020, the number of active digital certificates on the market reached more than 1.4 million, of which business digital certificates accounted for 85.12%, personal digital certificates accounted for 14.88%. Viettel-CA and VNPT-CA are the two enterprises with the largest market share in the market. The field of digital signature application mainly falls into three areas: tax, insurance and customs.

From the above data, it can be seen that the market for digital signature certification services is fiercely competitive with a large number of CAs, focusing on a single business client file. The potential individual customer market is still open and unexplored.

Taiwan has 4 CAs providing services to 10 million customers, equivalent to 1 CA serving 2.5 million customers.

With the above shortcomings, the new CA license does not make the market healthier, but on the contrary consumes resources of the state and society because supply has exceeded demand.

At the seminar, representatives of the Digital Signature and Electronic Transactions Club and some CAs all agreed: Suspend licensing for new CAs.
