PKI Forum Publishes White Paper on Return On Investment (ROI) for PKI Implementations
Wakefield Mass. August 20, 2002 A new White Paper entitled "PKI and Financial Return on Investment" has been publicly released by the PKI Forum, Inc., a multi-vendor and end-user industry consortium created to accelerate the adoption of public-key infrastructure (PKI) technologies, (www.oasis-pki.org). The paper is authored by Derek Brink, RSA Security, who is also a co-author of the book, PKI: Implementing and Managing E-Security . The paper is a deliverable by the Forum's Business Working Group in its ongoing efforts to inform the business community on topics of critical interest relating to PKI....
Return on Investment is a compelling issue today for all corporate expenditures. Derek has done an excellent job in concisely describing a framework and methodology for establishing the financial returns from an PKI implementation," said Patricia Lareau, Chair of the Forum's Business Working Group. "By focusing on the business processes, the methodology is persuasive and will be of value to all who read it.
The new White Paper discusses the business case for PKI in practical detail and generates specific ideas for PKI ROI analysis. As explained in the new paper, this is not about technology; it's about time and money.... The total cost of ownership for implementing an enabling e-security infrastructure such as PKI is significantly less than the financial returns made possible by PKI-enabled applications, when revenues, costs, compliance and risks are understood and quantified.
The new white paper augments a growing set of PKI Notes and White Papers created by the PKI Forum as part of its mission of educational outreach about the benefits of PKI. All the Forum's papers can be downloaded from the Resources section of its Web site, www.oasis-pki.org./resources.html.
The PKI Forum's next meeting will be held November 5-7 in Dallas, and it will include a one-day public seminar, entitled "PKI Today: Issues and Applications." Registration is now open for the Dallas meeting on the Forum's Web site, www.oasis-pki.org. The PKI Forum will also be represented at the RSA Conference 2002, in Paris, on October 7-10, 2002. Forum leaders will be on hand for interviews, as well.
