e-Cert - Your Electronic ID

Hongkong Post e-Cert can be regarded as a user's "electronic-ID" for online identity authentication. It ensures integrity, confidentiality and non-repudiation of the data transmitted in an electronic transaction.

Hongkong Post, as a recognized Certification Authority ("CA") is responsible under the Electronic Transactions Ordinance for the use of a trustworthy system for the issuance, withdrawal, and publication in a publicly available repository of recognized digital certificates for secure on-line identification. Such recognized certificates are called "e-Certs" which means a record to :-

  • be issued by a CA for the purpose of supporting a digital signature which purports to confirm the identity or other significant characteristics of the person who holds a particular key pair;
  • identify the certification authority issuing it;
  • name or identify the person to whom it is issued;
  • contain the public key of the person to whom it is issued; and
  • be signed by a responsible officer of the certification authority issuing it.
