Hongkong Post Certification Authority's root certificate included in Mozilla Firefox web browser

     Hongkong Post Certification Authority (HKPCA) today (April 19) announced that its root certificate (Hongkong Post Root CA 1) has been included by Mozilla in its latest version of the Firefox web browser.     

     The HKPCA is a recognised certification authority under the Electronic Transactions Ordinance of the Hong Kong SAR. The HKPCA's root certificate represents the trusted identity of the HKPCA on the Internet. Since 2000, the HKPCA has been issuing various types of recognised digital certificates (branded "e-Cert") to facilitate individuals and businesses to establish secure communications over the Internet.

     Common web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari and Mozilla Firefox now come with the HKPCA root certificate included or available. Users of these web browsers visiting websites that are installed with the Hongkong Post e-Cert (Server) certificate will be free from certain alert messages or manual intervention when their browsers establish a secure connection to these websites.

     Enquires about HKPCA e-Cert services can be made to the hotline 2921 6633. Information about the e-Cert services is also available at the HKPCA website,
