State and municipal bodies use actively the Internet to implement tasks. The paper studies variousaspects of the presence of public power on the Internet, execution of state functions in digitalenvironment, in particular securing openness of public power, providing electronic state andmunicipal services, their outsourcing and accompanying issues of information security includingscraper sites and identification when rendering state and municipal services electronically. Besides,the requirement of the openness of public power covers other state bodies and the structuresperforming public functions and the officials. Non-state structures may also satisfy publicly relevantinterests primarily when outsourcing some functions of state and municipal bodies. Hence, thesestructures should maintain a level of information openness equal to state and municipal bodiesincluding the provision of information. Some public functions are transmitted by the state in particularto self-regulated organizations. Hence, the question arises on securing their information openness.The information openness principle applied to self-governing organizations should be a principle forany self-regulated organizations, which is why the changes have touched upon other federal lawsproviding for the activity of such organizations. The requirement of open activity are not limited toself-regulated organizations. A number of the Russian Federation constituent entities have adoptedsimilar laws and rules targeting legal security of free access to information on the providers of socialservices, the services, terms, order, conditions, tariffs on the services in mass media and Internetofficial websites.
