e-Timestamp: binding documents and transactions to a particular time
The Timestamp service inserts the date and time digitally into a document or database. This can prove that the content of the document or of the database have not been modified since they were time-stamped.
It is based on independent time sources and conforms to the highest European standards (ETSI TS 102 023).
The Qualified Timestamping Service provided by LuxTrust meets the highest safety requirements as set out in European regulation eIDAS (Article 24 of Regulation 910/2014 on Electronic Identification and Trust Services). It therefore constitutes solid legal evidence.
