Abstract

Until the late 1990s, technology analysts expected public-key infrastructure (PKI) technology to be an essential element of online security systems. Today however, South Korea represents a unique example of widespread PKI use. This article traces the development of the Korean PKI and analyzes the social and cultural factors that contributed to the implementation and social adoption of the technology.
