We are pleased to announce the planned publication of a special issue of
the Jurimetrics Journal of Law, Science and Technology that will
exclusively address public key infrastructure (PKI) -- the law and
technology of certificate-based digital signatures and secure electronic
commerce. This announcement solicits articles for consideration for this
special Winter 1998 issue, which is intended as a forum for attorneys,
technologists, developers, and users interested in the legal aspects and
implications of PKI.

Technology and the Center for the Study of Law, Science and Technology of
the Arizona State University College of Law.


The Information Security Committee, Electronic Commerce Division, Section

and develops legal policy and foundation to support PKI and secure
electronic commerce. The ICSís current endeavors include research and
work product concerning: accreditation of certification authorities,
commercial key escrow guidelines, PKI evidentiary issues, digital
signature legislative initiatives, CA and user liability, and other legal
issues relating to secure electronic commerce. The discussions are
moderated by the relevant Work Groups of the ISC, and the ISC is open to
professionals of all disciplines with similar interests. In August l996,
the ISC published the Digital Signature Guidelines.  See Tutorial, Table
