The MoU between V Srinivasan, Chairman, eMudhra, and Ichiro Chujo, Group CEO & Chairman of the Board of Directors, GMO GlobalSign was signed in a bid to establish an effective collaboration for investigating/performing a proof of concept on, “International Mutual Recognition of Trust Services between private sectors in India and Japan.”
GMO GlobalSign is helping boost the digital ecosystem, in Japan & worldwide, for many years. They have implemented their technology for the government as well as enterprise use cases.
In the same way, eMudhra, being one of the largest players in the PKI space in India, has been leading PKI and Digital Signature applications in India and enabling large scale use cases for the government, banking and multiple other industries.
With this agreement, eMudhra and GlobalSign will work jointly and explore new possibilities that will make it convenient for Indian and Japanese organisations to get access to digital technologies locally and have similar recognition in both countries. This will be in line with the long history of trade relations between the two countries.
Expressing his views on the formal agreement, V Srinivasan says, “We are privileged to enter into a strategic partnership with GMO GlobalSign. We hope this partnership will create a new template for future International Mutual Recognition between Certifying Authorities operating across the globe. This is an important step in enabling the proliferation of International Mutual Recognition and interoperability of digital technologies worldwide.”
Talking about the same Ichiro Chujo says, “We expect this cooperative work by eMudhra and GMO GlobalSign to play a leading role in the process of realizing Internal Mutual Recognition of Trust services among Asian countries.” “In the Internet World, International Mutual Recognition of Trust Services is becoming an important issue. And, in the not too distant future, there will be the opportunity to discuss this issue among Asian region, European region and United States of America. We hope to develop effective discussion as members of Asian region at that time,” he added.
