The definition of the qualified time stamp service is based on the specifications of the IETF-PKIX RFC-3161 standard.
Safe Time Source:
To associate the data with a specific time in the timeline it is necessary to use a Qualified Time Stamp Authority (QTSA) as a trusted third party. Said moment will be obtained by a secure time source. In the case of the seal that NeoCheck sells is that of the Royal Observatory of the Navy that provides the basis of legal time throughout the national territory (RD 23 October 1992, No. 1308 / 1992).
Once the timestamp is received, it is distributed to the Digital Dates Authority. Using the NTP (Network Time Protocol) protocol with an accuracy of up to several microseconds.
Standards and norms:
The rule that governs the time-stamping service is ISO / IEC 18014. For the area of Public Administrations, the Public Sector Contracting Law 30/2007 in article 42 of Title 1 specifies the need for the agencies public to disseminate their profile of contracting through Internet and that the computer system that supports this profile has a device that allows to reliably prove the moment of beginning of the dissemination of information.
