Trusted third party timestamping service



TimeCert is a project to provide a trusted third-party timestamping service. It will essentially provide a timestamp for each SHA1 digest presented to it.

Source Code Release

This is the first public release of TimeCert source code. We’re releasing this mainly to encourage trust in our service. We also encourage others to run competing timestamping services. It is released under the AGPL, which means that if you decide to run a competing service you will need to release your source changes as well. We recommend using GitHub’s great forking feature for this.

Getting started

TimeCert currently uses edge merb and datamapper. To install this please follow the instructions in Life on the Edge with Merb, Datamapper and RSpec. Once the next releases of Merb and Datamapper are released they should be in sync and we plan on just following official releases.
