Definition Edit

An electronic time-stamp is

[t]he marking of a digital document (data file, audio track, video track, photograph, etc.) with a digital time-of-receipt fingerprint unique to the document to subsequently establish chronology and prove authenticity. In order to prevent backward or forward dating by the time-stamping service, each digital signature is linked to the preceding time stamp.[1]
