Securing the electronic archiving of documents held by French ministries

The context

Developing a secure, reliable and reusable archiving system

The Prime Minister's Office, in collaboration with the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Culture and Defence, has initiated the VITAM project. This ambitious project has an exciting goal: to develop an electronic archiving platform with probative value, capable of securely managing and preserving tens of billions of digital objects. VITAM is a game-changer in the world of digital archiving. Its reusability makes it a perfect fit for public authorities and private entities alike. Boasting a lifespan of at least 20 years, this high-security, high-volume solution is built to last.

The stakes

A platform tailored to the needs of public users

What is the main challenge of the VITAM project? We are on a mission to create a robust, secure and future-proof electronic archiving platform capable of meeting the stringent requirements for long-term data retention. It was a fantastic challenge to develop a flexible solution tailored to the varied needs of public administrations and private entities, while guaranteeing maximum security for archived data.

Our approach

VITAM is a cutting-edge platform that will ensure the continuity of archiving services

VITAM was developed using an agile method and the Scrum of Scrums framework to facilitate coordination between the various development teams:

  • We chose Java for its unparalleled robustness and flexibility
  • We selected the most cutting-edge open-source COTS on the market
  • We implemented a high-security solution for unitary management and long-term preservation of data
The result

The VITAM project has delivered a game-changing electronic archiving solution that meets the critical need for secure, long-term preservation of digital data. This is a truly significant advance in the management of electronic archives, offering public authorities and private entities a reliable and secure platform for preserving their digital assets.

  • Development of a high-security archiving solution
