This paper examines a controversial topic – “Is digital certificate technology a success or failure?” The arguments and facts from both sides are presented in this paper. A high profile failure case in Hong Kong is discussed. Some problems of Certificate Authorities are presented. This paper differs from other security papers in that technical terms (such as algorithms, details of data frames, etc.) are minimized as far as possible.
