Time Stamp Settings


Signature with an embedded timestamp and certificate status information is referred to as a Long Term Validity (LTV) signature. Long-term digital signatures are essential if the signed documents need to be verified months or years later.

LTV (Long Term Validity) Settings allows you to configure Time Stamp Authority (TSA) credentials, so that the timestamp is fetched from TSA while signature is placed in the document.

Step 1: Login to www.emsigner.com using your Admin User Name and Password

Step 2: On the top right corner, click on your profile image and go to the “Settings” menu

Step 3: Under Admin Settings menu, click on “Timestamp Settings” option

Step 4: You need to configure the following fields to enable LTV signatures

  • Time Stamping URL – enter the Time Stamp Authority (TSA) URL in the text field

  • Time Stamping User Name – select “Time Stamping User Name” and enter the user name if any provided by TSA

  • Time Stamping Password – enter the password if any provided by TSA

Step 5: Finally click on Add button. Configured fields will be listed in the page below. It can also be edited using the edit icon in Actions column. You can delete the created fields using delete icon.

Once the above configurations are performed by the administrator, while performing electronic signatures by the signatories, signatures will be certified and time stamped by the Time Stamping Authority. This signature can be verified even months or years later.
