Archivists are especially challenged by digital records that are digitally signed. Such records represent a challenge because they have to retain certain characteristics when preserving them. It is, in fact, the core of the problem in preserving the validity of electronic signatures and validation opportunities long after the electronic signature has been created. Therefore, this thesis will analyze the issues of preserving such records. The concepts of long-term preservation, digital records and digitally signed records have been clarified. Part of this thesis also deals with cryptography as the environment in which an electronic signature emerged. Research has also been carried out in which the certification service provided by Fina is analyzed. The standards and regulations to which this issue has to be addressed are outlined. Existing approaches have been analyzed for the long-term preservation of this kind of records, where blockchain technology has been represented as a new approach.
