Authenticated Public and Private Laws on GPO Access

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) is pleased to announce the release of Authenticated Public and Private Laws for the 110th Congress on GPO Access. In May 2007, GPO released a beta version of this database. The unsigned PDF files in the existing database for Public and Private Laws for the 110th Congress will be replaced with the authenticated PDF files previously in the beta application. Search or browse Public and Private Laws.

GPO's Authentication initiative focuses on establishing GPO as the trusted information disseminator and providing the assurance that an electronic document has not been altered since GPO disseminated it.

The Public and Private Laws application provides authenticated Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files for the 110th Congress only. Authenticated public and private laws within this application contain digitally signed and certified PDF files that contain GPO's Seal of Authenticity. These files have been digitally signed and certified using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology. GPO is using PKI and Digital Signature technologies to verify the authenticity of the electronic U.S. Government documents that it disseminates through the FDLP. GPO's Seal of Authenticity notifies users that a document has not been altered since it was authenticated and disseminated by GPO.
