Non-repudiation

The non-repudation aims at proving facts to third parties so that the dispatch and reception of data and information cannot be denied. There is the “non-repudiation of origin” (the sender of a message should not have the opportunity to belatedly deny the dispatch of a specific message) and the “non-repudiation of receipt” (a receiver should not have the opportunity to belatedly deny the reception of a message).
