The European eIDAS regulation (electronic identification and trust services) aims to ensure that:
Only parties that certify to the highest level can legally offer digital signatures and online identification solutions. The EU has drawn up strict frameworks and guidelines to guarantee the above services’ safety, reliability, and legality. This article looks closely at insuring your transactions and shipments using timestamps and geolocations: the eTimestamp.
What is an eTimestamp (electronic timestamp)?
You can use an eTimestamp solution to add a timestamp and geolocation to essential documents, messages and transactions. In this way, you prove that the relevant document or transactions, such as purchase and shipping receipts, existed at a certain point in time. To put it more technically: with the help of an eTimestamp solution, you can legally assign a universal date, time, and location to forms of digital data (such as documents, messages, and transactions). This way, you can prevent your important documents, messages, and transactions from being changed without your knowledge.
Please note: you always use electronic time stamps and geolocations (eTimestamp) in combination with advanced and qualified digital signatures & electronic seals (eSignature and eSeal). After all, a timestamp is of little use if you cannot guarantee the integrity of your digital data (eSeal) and your business transactions (eSignature). Therefore, always work with a provider of qualified eSignature and eSeal solutions with authority to issue timestamps.
