Authentication? PKI? Digital signatures? Do these concepts make your head spin? The technology and processes involved in the creation of authenticated online legal resources can be confusing. Dr. James King, Senior Principal Scientist and PDF Platform Architect at Adobe will explain how public key infrastructure (PKI) and digital signatures are used to authenticate PDF documents. Mike Wash, Chief Information Officer at the Government Printing Office will discuss how these technologies are put into operation at the GPO in its authentication program. He will also address chain-of-custody issues by explaining how the GPO acquires data from the content originators and how the data is processed to ensure that it is authentic. These speakers will help give law librarians the understanding necessary to promote quality and trustworthy legal information for our digital future.
