Timestamping technology

The technology used

Our service is based on electronic timestamping and digital signature processes (Law of 13 March 2000).

1 - The FIDEALIS service is a solution that combines several tools:

Certain timestamps (synchronization on atomic clocks and on GPS)
Digital signature (law of 13 March 2000).
Automatic tracking at bailiff in real time ( notarization).
Secure and encrypted access to your account (No interception of this personal information is possible)


2 - For more information, here are some explanations about the signature and timestamp technologies:

FIDEALIS has conformed to the standards defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to control and create the electronic timestamp service. Timestamping is an extension to the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) used for electronic signatures.

This structure, an international research and industrial community, meets regularly to advance Internet protocols and its uses. Its approaches and standards can be found on the IETF website.

Here are the standards used for our applications:

Timestamping token: The timestamping service returns a signed message in the standard cryptographic message syntax format based on the PKCS # 7 version 1.5. IETF 2630

Content of the signature: the signed message contains the FIDEALIS clock data (atomic clock in stratum 1 and GPS time) and the "message digest" of your document as defined in the PKI x.509 timestamp protocol/ IETF RFC 3161.

Public keys: The public part of the signature key is available as an x.509 certificate. IETF 2459

Digital Fingerprint: A single value is calculated from the data to be time-stamped using the Sha-1 hashing algorithm as defined in the US for processing information: FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) in publication 180-1 (Secure Hash Standard)

Ades: advanced electronic signature. Ask us information about this comptability.
