Zetes Confidens is the first Belgian qualified provider of time stamp services 22/10/2019 Brussels, 22nd of October 2019 – Zetes Confidens, the qualified provider of trust services for electronic signatures, is now also officially accredited for the provision of time stamp services. A time stamp irrefutably verifies the time when an electronic signature is placed on a file or a document. Since the introduction of the European eIDAS regulation in 2016, companies that offer trust services must undergo an extensive audit. This a prerequisite for designating themselves as a Qualified Trust Service Provider (QTSP). “The new accreditation makes us the first Belgian provider that can offer qualified time stamp services in the European market”, says Geert Peeters, Head of Business Development & Innovation in the People ID Divison of Zetes. “A digital signature proves who signed a file or a document. A time stamp proves when it was signed”, says Peeters. Placing a time stamp adds digital date and time information to an electronic signature. This allows tracing of any changes made after the time of the signature. All changes made before the electronic signature are effectively legally valid. Guaranteed trustworthy Time stamps irrefutably verify the time when an electronic signature is placed on a file or a document. They thus strengthen the integrity of the signed document. However, not all tools for placing time stamps are equally trustworthy. Most common time sources, such as the system time of a computer, can easily be manipulated. This is why it is important to be able to rely on a guaranteed trustworthy time source. “Thanks to the new accreditation, we can now also offer this important guarantee to our customers”, concludes Peeters.
