The Internal Certificate Authority (ICA) provides digital certificates for use inside the State Government Network to address the need to protect data in transit. The ICA provides a Certificate Revocation List (CRL) that allows systems to validate that a certificate has not been revoked.
Certificates issued to state agencies are used for encryption, authentication and identification of servers and/or client via SSL and TLS. Some agencies use the ICA to provide protection of sensitive data and high-value resources.
The ICA was created as part of the decision package for the Integration Competency Center. The Secure Gateway Services group provides the ICA service.
