This article reports that the EEMA, the European forum for electronic business, has announced that the PKI Forum, a multi-vendor industry consortium created to accelerate the adoption of Public-Key Infrastructure technology and PKI-based solutions as the trusted foundation for secure electronic business applications, has signed a reciprocal Liaison Membership Agreement with the EEMA to create awareness of PKI requirements for secure electronic business across Europe and to assist vendors with PKI interoperability. The EEMA has recently put forward a project to the European Commission, the PKI Challenge for funding, which will be Europe's largest PKI interoperability project. The project is open to up to 25 different PKI technologies and to an unlimited number of parties that wish to participate without engaging into the actual interoperability testing.
