Preserving Digital Documents


The introduction of electronic, or digital, documents created the need to preserve these digital objects in a way that guaranteed their integrity, confidentiality, and accessibility in the long term, while maintaining their legal validity.

In order to preserve these digital documents, CSUC offers the universities a shared digital archiving platform. This platform guarantees that the documents it contains are conserved securely, that the digital signature they incorporate is fully valid, and that they can be recovered and viewed at any time.

The program used by the platform is called iArxiu and it belongs to the Agència Catalana de Certificació (Catalan Certification Agency, CATCert).
