Systems is first Illinois small business to receive a state issued
State of Illinois Digital Signature/Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)
Project provides an enterprise-wide infrastructure to facilitate
electronic government services. PKI utilizes public key cryptography and
digital signatures along with software to manage digital certificates
also known as digital IDs. Building these services into software
applications provides the means to authenticate users, ensure privacy
and integrity of data, and establish the audit trails needed to give
electronic transactions the same or better levels of assurance then the
State was able to provide when it did business with paper.
centrally deployed model will eliminate the need for each governmental
entity to individually develop and implement these tools. It will also
provide a more workable model for citizens, eliminating the need to deal
with multiple PINs, passwords, or encryption keys. After a single
registration process the citizen will be issued a digital ID that is
quite literally a “key” to electronic government. The digital ID
will enable citizens and businesses to identify or authenticate
themselves in order to receive personalized electronic services,
digitally sign forms to be submitted and send or receive sensitive
information in an encrypted form to protect privacy while interacting
with any participating government entity.
Systems endorses the PKI project and is proud to be the first Illinois
small business to receive a Digital ID.

month," said Evangeline, in reference to her years on welfare,
"And I wanted my son to see that I was doing something."
