For several months now, the number of foreign members of the FNTC has not stopped growing – currently there are 18 members representing 12 countries – and this is why the FNTC has decided to offer pages exclusively in English.
Opening on 25 October 2015, the site is going to progressively improve with the information, contributions and interviews from the members of our "International Committee".
They will be able to present to us their products and the services they offer their clients.
They will also keep us informed on the state of technology and legislation in their countries, the sites launched by public authorities, their fears and their aspirations, their innovative methods.
We will try, for our part, to inform our foreign members about what is happening in the French digital field. 
Digital Trust is the result of the intervention of skateholders known as Trusted Third Parties.

FNTC publishes a "Guide for the Confidentiality of Digital Archives".
Digital archives exist to be read, some are also used as evidence and others constitute historic or scientific heritage. The need for the integrity, accessibility and durability of these archives has been the primary reason for the development of solutions to electronic archiving which contribute to the modernisation of our society.
Currently this society is marked more and more by the problem of the confidentiality of digital information in a broad sense. Data Protection is faced with threats from the internationalisation of operators, from hacking, and even internal operators have thus become a major preoccupation.
How can we reconcile our need for accessibility with our need for confidentiality with regard to digital archiving ?
The work-group Archiving of the Federation of Trusted Third Parties (FNTC) publishes this guide on this subject by addressing in particular solutions for encrypting on the integrity and durability of these digital archives.
