Containing both personal and commercial confidential information, emails concern the information security of state secrets for state institutions. To obtain important information, stealing email information, tampering with the content and sending emails with fake ID using illegal methods will be no longer sensational. After the Prism scandal, government institutions have been attaching more importance to safety construction and avoid being monitored. As for security products purchasing, government institutions tend to prefer domestic products. It is imperative to realize the autonomous and controllable information security. As a vital link of information technology, domestic brands of SSL certificate inexorable trend.
Because of the particularity of SSL certificate, not all domestic CA are able to issue SSL certificate. The issued SSL certificate will be trusted by global browsers only if the CA has passed international Web Trust certification. At present, there are only 3 CA that have passed this certification. After research, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology finally chose WoSign SSL certificate, which can be perfectly compatible with all browsers after 1999, servers and mainstream mobile devices. WoSign SSL certificate can replace foreign products in performance. Another system of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the bidding information of communication engineering construction projects platform (https://txzb.miit.gov.cn/) also applied WoSign SSL certificate.
After ten years work, WoSign CA, with both domestic and international licenses, has provided certificate products and services for many Party and government organizations, public institutions like the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Beijing Municipal Bureau, Hubei State Administrative of Taxation, Shenzhen administration of social insurance fund, Shenzhen housing fund management center, Shenzhen road traffic management center, economic information center of Fujian province to respond to national security strategy. WoSign actively promotes the process of the localization of SSL certificate and secure the internet information in China with its high quality products and services. We hope that more and more government websites and systems can use domestic SSL certificate to prevent traffic hijack and data leakage.
