Applying eIDAS qualified electronic timestamps to documents and data
The ability to provide eIDAS compliant proof of time and content is essential for several use cases across many industries, including evidence of completion of time-critical transactions, GDPdU-compliant archiving of tax-relevant data, or safeguarding of electronic documents.
Qualified electronic timestamps enable trustworthy digitalization of business processes by providing reliable proof that a document remains unchanged at a specific point in time.
In compliance with eIDAS, qualified electronic timestamps benefit from a high level of security and legality of trust services, by ensuring the accuracy of the date and time, it indicates the integrity of the data to which the date and time are bound.
Based on a Time Stamping Authority (TSA) accurate and trusted timestamps are applied via standard interface RFC 3161.
UTIMACO, as a Qualified Time Stamping Authority (TSA), provides the corresponding solution that enables eIDAS-compliant proof of time and content - a business-critical requirement in many fields of application.
