Australia,- March 2006 - VillageMall®, the
premier provider of online Business Solutions for Australian
business owners and operators,
today announced the release of Australia's first and only fully integrated
Document Sealing Service as part of its
suite of integrated on-demand applications.
This new service
provides the ability to seal certified digital originals that
potentially command equal legal status with paper based documents
(subject to local legislation). The sealing service provides the
ability to establish an auditable record of a document’s
authenticity and to securely bind it in time. This capability has

While it is easy to see if a handwritten document has been
tampered with, this is not the case with electronic documents,
leaving them vulnerable to undetectable manipulation and
potentially untrustworthy in the eyes of the law. However, in many
situations an electronic document may be the only evidence of a
transaction that is available. Equally concerning is the rapid
replacement of traditionally paper-based processes such as tax
filing, applications for loans or mortgages and the sharing of
legal statements or clinical records. These types of documents are
often widely accessible within an organisation and yet present
serious implications both to retention of intellectual property
and organisational compliance particularly in heavily regulated

tamper-evident, trustworthy digital originals which can maintain
their evidentiary value over long periods of time, is essential as
organisations move away from traditional paper-based
The VillageMall Document Sealing Service provides an additional
layer of security that is bound to a document during the storage
process. The sealing service cryptographically seals documents
through the application of a industry standard XML digital
signature and a secure and auditable time stamp. As a centralised
Villagemall resource the Sealing Service is available to all Web
Office customers and comes fully integrated into Web Cabinet.
Unlike any other services our sealing service does not require
complex setup or PKI infrastructures, all operations are carried
out transparently to the company or user.
