Time Stamping

nCipher delivers secure, accurate time stamping that ensures integrity and traceability in digital records management, supporting code signing, transactions, logs and more

Time Stamping

Digital time stamping is integral to an organization’s ability to verify data and code integrity, generate audit trails and enforce non-repudiation for electronic signatures. nCipher delivers a secure, high-assurance time-stamping solution that is protected by the nShield Solo+ HSMs. The time stamping solution automates records processing and supports a diverse array of applications.

Maximize trust and confidence

Software-only time-stamping solutions are vulnerable to such threats as computer clock tampering. By contrast, hardware-based time stamping from nCipher delivers high-assurance integrity to digital records management.

Increase efficiency

With automated time stamping, organizations can increase their efficiency and reduce the cost of processes that otherwise rely on paper-based or manual signatures and dates.

Use with diverse applications

nCipher’s time-stamping solution supports a wide variety of applications, including code signing, financial transactions, legal filings, lotteries and gaming, security logs, long-term archives and more.

Time Stamping Option Pack

nCipher delivers time-stamping capabilities through the Time Stamping Option Pack, an optional accessory used with the nShield Solo+ HSMs. The Time Stamping Option Pack works inside the secure boundaries of the nShield HSMs to generate time stamps originating from a centralized time source, and makes these time stamps available to customer applications through APIs.

Centralized Time Source

Depending on customer requirements, the Time Stamping Option Pack can generate time stamps based on a centralized time source or on the UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) standard.

Operating System
