Trustworthy records retention

Chapter

Abstract

  • Trustworthy retention of electronic records has become a necessity to ensure compliance with laws and regulations in business and the public sector. Among other features, these directives foster accountability by requiring organizations to secure the entire life cycle of their records, so that records are created, kept accessible for an appropriate period of time, and deleted, without tampering or interference from organizational insiders or outsiders. In this chapter, we discuss existing techniques for trustworthy records retention and explore the open problems in the area. © 2008 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
