Turkmenistan joins ICAO Public Key Directory

30/12/16

The president of Turkmenistan has tasked the State Customs Service to make arrangements necessary for Turkmenistan's inclusion into the Public Key Directory of the International Civil Aviation Organization.

The State Migration Service will serve as representative of Turkmenistan for cooperation with the Public Key Directory of the International Civil Aviation Organization, the state news agency of Turkmenistan said.

The International Civil Aviation Organization Public Key Directory (ICAO PKD) is a database maintained by the International Civil Aviation Organization holding national cryptographic keys related to the authentication of e-passport information.

The United Nations became the first non-state member in October 2012, enabling issuing of e-UNLP, the electronic form of the United Nations laissez-passer.

In December 2014, ICAO self-reported the PKD as having 45 participating member countries.

In 2015 the German Bundesdruckerei (German Federal Printing Office) has won the request for tender of the ICAO to provide the ICAO PKD.
