Time Stamp Server, part of the Thales family of high security
data protection solutions, is a turn-key network attached
appliance that keeps accurate time and creates time stamps
to attest the origin and time of electronic records and
applications. The independently certified solution enables
organizations to validate the accuracy of time stamps used
for digital records, similarly to signing and dating a paper
document. Unlike software-based systems in which
administrators can easily manipulate time, Time Stamp
Server protects time stamping keys in tamper-resistant
hardware; the time stamping component is validated to FIPS
140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria EAL 4+. Unlike other
competing products, Thales Time Stamp Server is compatible
with Microsoft Authenticode, the code signing standard for
Windows platforms, and can provide highly accurate time
stamps auditable to Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) for
secure time traceability to independent national atomic clocks.

Integration
Time Stamp Server is easy to integrate with
business applications that time-stamp digitally
signed documents such as PDFs, and code
including drivers and scripts. Common uses
include financial transactions, lotteries and
gaming, security logs, long-term archives,
notarization, electronic lab books and code signing.
Management and Monitoring
Time Stamp Server is remotely managed through
a web interface to reduce operational costs and
sends error notices to the administrator by email.
