Paraguay’s government published oficially the law project, that gives legal validity to electronic signatures, digital, data messages and electronic case files.
President Fernando Lugo had objected entirely the project, but both houses of Congress were ratified in their approval, which is why the executive had no choice but to enact.
The government must regulate the project 90 days after publication, on December 24th.
The electronic signature is the integrated set of electronic data, linked and logically associated with other electronic data, used by the signatory as their means of identification.
The digital signature is an electronic signature certified by an accredited provider while the message data is any information generated, sent, received through electronic means (mail, telegram, telex, telefax, etc.)..
