First PKI Conference!

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) hosted its first PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) Conference on March 6, 2014.  The conference was an opportunity for federal agencies to gather and discuss the challenges and solutions involved in submitting an ever-increasing number of documents digitally for publication in the Federal Register.  Twenty-four people attended in person and thirty-three attended via the available webinar.  Twenty-eight different agencies were represented.

NARA and OFR are excited as we move forward with our PKI program.  Just last year, over 286,000 pieces of paper were saved by agencies that sent their documents digitally for publication in the Federal Register.  The percentage of documents sent digitally to the OFR for publication rose to 41% in 2013.  OFR’s goal is to help equip and enable agencies to continue their move away from paper submissions to digital submissions. A full table of 2013’s PKI information is available at

  1. Thanks for a great topic

  2. Good information for everyone. Thank you.

  3. terms and sentence structure of these government documents are obviously written to be understood by attorneys and thus violate any stated intent to be transparent to the voters with average intelligence.

  4. If you really want to communicate to us, recognize we are not all skilled on the technology of the internet… i.e., words are faded blue and type fonts small (eye strain).
    Provide a glossary for your terms (HTML, etc).

  5. Very informative article.

  6. I really did not know that!
