February 07 2002 - Brazil Aoki Advogados Associados Government launches digital certification systemI With a new law called Provisional Measure 2200, the Brazilian government has officially launched the Brazilian public-key infrastructure, known as ICP-Brasil, which was created to guarantee the legal validity and integrity of e-documents through digital certification. Under the new law, the Root Certification Authority will be established, which will register certification companies. The Nationallnstitute of Information Technology will determine the strict procedures and checks that certification companies must comply with in order to be duly accredited. Once registered with the Root Certification Authority, a certification company may register e- signatures and issue digital certificates. Certificates shall contain identification information and the public key of the registered person or entity. The public key will be paired with a private key. The private key, unique to the user, will be used to encode the signature/documents and the public key will be used to decode the signature/documents.
