Cryptographic Timestamping RFC3161 (requiring accuracy of second) is important mechanism for the long-term preservation of e-signatures, data sealing, proving document originality. Any  place  where  consequences  may have  a  financial  impact or penalty of law, the trusted  time stamping  is  no  less  important than synchronization. It proves non-repudiation when data was created, received or copied. This technology helps protect e-documents and chronology. Public administration chooses mostly NTP (Network Time Protocol).
