non-repudiation

(redirected from Nonrepudiation)

non-repudiation

To be unable to reject the validity of a document (unable to prove it is counterfeit). The term is the opposite of "repudiate," which means to reject the validity of something.

Digital signatures and certificates provide non-repudiation because they guarantee the authenticity of a document or message. As a result, the sending parties cannot deny that they sent it (they cannot repudiate it). Non-repudiation can also be used to ensure that an email message was opened (see email tracker).

A 2015 RAND Corporation report on Air Force cybersecurity referenced DoDI 8500.01 definition above, adding that cybersecurity is "limiting adversary intelligence exploitation to an acceptable level and ensuring an acceptable level of operational functionality (survivability) even when attacked offensively through cyberspace." Cybersecurity should not be viewed as an end state.
