What exactly is a Timestamp Authority Server?

A Timestamp Authority Server (or TSA Server) is a server unit which adds a timestamp, hence providing a data-integrity seal through a trusted time and date of when the electronic transaction took pace. To simplify, look at timestamping as a trusted process of keeping and maintaining a secure track of document’s time creation and modification.

The most secure way to protect and ensure document integrity is timestamping it. Now, security in these terms implies that no one, even the document owner, will not be able to change the timestamped document content.

The PAdES (PAdES-LTV) and XAdES (XAdES-T, XAdES-XL) document signing standards are the core foundation of the timestamp. Through applying timestamps, a business is setting a sound ground for long term validation (LTV) of all signed documents.

Not using TSA implies taking high risks!

Working with e-documents without being timestamped by a trusted authority server equals to gambling with your entire business integrity and trust. Below are some jaw-dropping scenarios if your documents are not timestamped:

  • Users can effortlessly manipulate local client machine time while signing electronic documents
  • These repudiated documents will always be voided in courts or by third-party clients
  • Complete distrust, non-existent integrity and e-document validity
  • Ultimately, irrelevant and compromised documents without further value or purpose
