The OpenEvidence Project


Welcome to the OpenEvidence Project. In this web based service you find all information concerning the project. Note: This server is currently being completely reconstructed and there may be missing links, etc.



With the emergence of legal environments concerning the recognition of electronic signatures and long-term validity of electronic documents evidence-creating and evidence-validating services operated by third parties are a proposed means to address the problem of technical support for long-term authentic documents. By providing an open source solution, the OpenEvidence (IST-2001-35174) project responds to Action line IV.3.3 of the EU 7TH IST call as a take-up action, to foster in Europe a critical mass of development of free software.
