“I am excited that eMudhra is the first body from India to become a member of the CA/Browser Forum. I feel that participation in such forum will be highly valuable from a learning perspective and towards shaping the future technologies relating to PKI,” said V. Srinivasan, Chairman – eMudhra.

In turn, this will help Indian small businesses to avail security certificates for websites, mobile apps and application code signing in locally feasible procedures,” said Vijay Kumar, Head of Technology – eMudhra.
