A digital signature system has been introduced by Nepal Police to make its operation more organized and effective.
During a function held at the Nepal Police (NP) Headquarters, Naxal, Inspector General of Police Prakash Aryal officially inaugurated the system by sending a communication with digital signature to the Metropolitan Police Office and other regional police offices.
On the occasion, Managing Director of Thapathali-based Nepal Certifying Company Pvt Ltd, Purushottam Ghimire, handed over seven units of digital signature set to IGP Aryal. The company has the license to provide digital signature and certificate in Nepal for secured and authentic electronic transactions.
The company’s IT officer Kishan Pandey demonstrated the use of digital signature.
The digital signature will be used for communication among the NP Headquarters, Metropolitan Police Office and other regional police offices.
The NP said that digital signature system will be used to make official communication secure and reliable while avoiding the chances of fake communications. Around 40 police personnel were trained on the management of digital signature. The system helps these personnel ensure that electronic documents like e-mail, spreadsheet and text file are authentic.
