Web Commodore Digital Proof Tokens are generated using a locked-down Hardware Security Module (HSM) certified to FIPS 140-2 Level 3 standard for all cryptographic operations
Trusted Time Stamp
Web Commodore is a trusted Time Stamping Authority (TSA). All Digital Proof Tokens are signed in accordance with the IETF RFC3161 industry standard with a date and time stamp accurate to within 3 milliseconds, synchronised to the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)
Digital Proof Token Security
Web Commodore uses security standards-compliant systems for all its operations and uses a private RSASSA-PSS 3072 bit security key locked down in a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 HSM module to sign all Digital Proof Tokens. Digital Proof Tokens are registered as non-fungible tokens (NFT) on the GoChain public blockchain.
1A unique fingerprint (sha-256) of the digital file is generated by the browser and transmitted to Web Commodore.
2The fingerprint is combined with an accurate timestamp.
3The fingerprint / timestamp combination is encrypted using a locked-down Hardware Security Module (HSM)
4Together with a public key to provide authenticity, this generates a Digital Proof Token
5The Digital Proof Token is registered on the GoChain public blockchain
6The ownership and integrity of the digital file can be verified at any time
