Protection of archive

The electronic part of the archive, that includes the electronic mail exchange, is part of the regular back-up procedure of NIKHEF, which implied daily tape backups at a different physical location. Access to the electronic mail archive is controlled by Unix-style permissions.

The paper-based verification trail is stored on paper in a locked or CA-staffed office at NIKHEF.
