Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: 56-72 str.Other title: New Technologies applicable to Document and Records Management: Blockchain [Naslov na engleskom:].Subject(s): 5.04 | document management, records management, blockchain, digital signatures, long-term preservation | document management, records management, blockchain, digital signatures, long-term preservationOnline resources: Elektronička verzija In: Lligall. Revista Catalana d'Arxivística. Noves perspectives en matèria de gestió documental 41 (2018) ; str. 56-72Summary: Blockchain is a relatively new technology with a great potential. Although it is best known as the underlying technology of cryptocurrencies, it might have a profound influence on the document and records management. Business and government-related processes, like for example signing of a contract, changes in the land registry, or voting, can be improved in the electronic environment by the use of blockchain technology. It could bring the reliability of the exchange of documents and records from a relatively unsecure and untrusted to a new, more secure and trusted level. Another issue to be discussed is the long term preservation of digitally signed or digitally sealed documents. Their certificates usually expire in two to five years. Their re-signing or re-timestamping might prove to be a rather complicated set of activities while the use of blockchain might solve this problem easily. The author, therefore, investigates the identified issues, reports on the research activities done in that direction at the international project InterPARES Trust, explains the mechanisms behind the research results achieved so far, and proposes the actions that might be taken to implement the blockchain technology in the document and records management.
