Abstract: Delivery of services to citizens efficiently and at affordable cost is a major concern of many governments today. Many national electronisation projects today aim at empowering governments to implement and accept digitally signed tax returns, execute transactions securely and tighten border controls while maintaining strong security and streamlining administration under affordable costs. To do this, the need for technologies and policies to ensure trusted transactions and identities become very significant. In line with this, digitally enhanced travel and identity documents, e-health and business authentication methods are gaining great popularity and importance in recent times. The public key infrastructure (PKI) using X.509 digital certificates can provide a great framework for handling such government services and concerns with high level of integrity. This paper seeks to develop a architecture of a government PKI, efficient and effective for providing secure government services to citizens.
