Audkenni, the main trust service provider in Iceland, has selected the Smart ID Certificate Manager to enable its qualified electronic certificate services. With a focus on CA services, Audkenni supports individuals and organizations with diverse solutions providing solutions around trusted digital identities, secure authentication and digital signatures.
