Protect the intellectual property in any file on your computer
You can only protect your work if you can prove you created it first. Add your name and prove you created it.
No matter what type of creative work you produce: photos, videos, music, books, designs, et cetera, with e-Timestamp you can prove your work existed with your name on it at a point-in-time. It works on any digital file. With a cost of only 40¢ per timestamp, e-Timestamp means you can protect more of your work and more often.

How it works
First, a digital fingerprint of your file is generated on your computer.
See how easy it is to get protection!
Next, this digital fingerprint is sent to a DigiStamp Timestamp Authority.
The Timestamp Authority creates a timestamp with the fingerprint, the authority's digital signature, and the current time.
The timestamp is returned to you as a certificate, for your safe keeping, verifying the file's existence at the moment of timestamping. This certificate is proof that the file has not changed since being protected
You should include your name in the file that you timestamp, otherwise all that will be proven is that the file existed at a point-in-time.
You must retain a copy of the file version you timestamped. A modified version will no longer have the same digital fingerprint so it will not be protected.
You must retain a copy of the timestamp certificate to protect the authenticity of your records.
What you'll need to do
Ensuring your copyrights has never been this cheap or this easy:
First, you'll need to have a digital file of your created works. If your work was not created digitally, this can be a scan, recording, or any other digital file that substantially represents your work. If you have a file on your computer that is unmistakably your work and includes your name, we can protect it with a timestamp.
Next, you'll need to make an account with DigiStamp. There is a minimum charge of $10 to use the service, but timestamps cost only $.40. Ten dollars allows you to protect 25 files of your work.
Now, you're ready to make your first e-Timestamp with our web applications, or other programs like Adobe Acrobat or Microsoft Office.
Video demonstrations of how to use our web applications and the IP Protector are available.
An e-TimeStamp is a SecureTime certificate stating that a specific data file existed at a point-in-time. Every e-TimeStamp is created by an auditably locked-down FIPS-certified HSM. Independently verifiable evidence for $.40.

Why you can trust it
DigiStamp provides strong legal evidence for authentication
Simply put, you need proof of what you've done and when you did it. Our service provides strong evidence for both.
In fact, we provide uniquely strong evidence, in part because we have implemented internationally standardized methods.
No one can use our service to produce a false timestamp. Even we can't produce false timestamps. If someone offered us a million dollars, we still couldn't produce a false timestamp.
Why not? A DigiStamp timestamp offers you three layers of security:
- An audit trail from two independent authorities proving that our equipment does exactly what we say it does.
- State-of-the-art software that meets the highest established standards.
- Uniquely customized hardware that cannot be tampered with.
Our timestamps have not been successfully challenged in 10 years of operation. Many organizations have trusted us to protect intellectual property and records of great value to their operations.
