Short Abstract: Digital signatures and certificate based identification is one of today's hot topics. Individual people as well as corporate and governmental institutes are demanding or building up electronic signature based solutions to enhance security, confidentiality and non-repudiation. Certificate Authorities (CAs) are at the very heart of this architecture, being a trusted third party in these situations. At the end of 2001, the Hungarian government introduced and accepted a bill in order to enable the legal usage of electronic signatures. This bill is conformant with the EU legislation of electronic signatures. As a result, Hungarian CA-s begun to work or to be conformant to this law. MV INFORMATIKA Ltd. was one of these firms. Based on the existing infrastructure we begun to build up a nation wide CA, with all the necessary details. The presentation is about the details of setting up such a service, including the basic components (CA, RA, directories) as well as other, but still vital parts such as load balancing and High Availability system, firewalls, intrusion detection etc. However, having a technically working CA is only one part of the whole: besides the implementation, one has to look after the legal, financial, staff-oriented, educational and other aspects, and to try to avoid the not-so-evident errors and pitfalls of the regulations as well. The presentation covers some a part of this "synchronization" between tech and reality.
