Encryption emerges as one possible tool to combat digital threats at different levels of sophistication. Accordingly, this research discusses this tool in great detail and then focuses on the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) encryption technique, as one of the most stringent encryption tools available in the marketplace nowadays. This research highlights the different issues surrounding the PKI technology in the area of mobile commerce, highlighting implications and future trends.
