Digital certificates are the building blocks of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) that create and manage electronic credentials, allowing the use of digital signatures and their underlying keys and certificates across the Internet. This infrastructure is very important for e-service, e-commerce and even egovernment in Thailand. Thailand's Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (MICT) issued digital certificates for Thai government officials as a part of the national ICT master plan (IT 2010). Therefore, the aim of this paper is to examine how this project was initiated, planned, carried out, terminated and evaluated, and how appropriate risk strategies were formulated.
