Authenticity and Provenance

Authenticity is the degree to which a person or system regards an object as what it is purported to be. Authenticity is judged on the basis of evidence which consists of Provenance Information. This information provides the origin or source of the Content Information, any changes that may have taken place since it was originated, and who has had custody of it since it was originated.

Provenance may be divided into Technical (information automatically recorded by software) and Non-technical provenance (information about the person in charge of the Content Information).

APARSEN will carry out a review of authenticity systems and develop or adopt methods for creating evidence for the evaluation of authenticity which will be trusted by users. Of particular interest is the interoperability of Provenance systems which will be carried out by extending ISO 21127:2006 (which establishes guidelines for the exchange of information between cultural heritage institutions) to the needs of digital preservation for various application domains.
