The statement noted that the launch of the self-assigned root Cerfiticate Authority (CA) and a trusted Registration and subordinate certificate Authority (RA and CA) domain administered by the commission was a historical milestone.

These digital certificates maps public keys to entities which can be revoked if need be.
“The DG further invites Nigerians to use the NIMC online pre-enrollment portal on www.ninenrol.gov.ng  assuring that the portal was capable of accommodating everyone even if the whole Nigeria chose to enroll at once,” the statement said.
