Did you know that with Lyme you can prove the immutability of a file?
With Lyme you can use the time stamps and prove the immutability of the log file.
The time stamp ensures the file hasn't been changed since the moment the log was concluded.
For that reason this stamp is a separate file, because only this way can we ensure the log file is immutable.
The time stamps are created at the same time the automatic log files, that is, one when the new notification email is delivered on the receiver email server and another when the decision of accepting or rejecting is taken, as well as when the message is ignored and expires. To learn more about log files, check the article about them here.
Let us now analyze its content. If you want to download the example time stamp used in this article, click here.
On the top we have the Lyme – Log your message logo and the indication that this file is a time stamp certificate.
The first field named "Log file name" refers to the name of the correspondent log file. The "Comment" field mentions the time in the message course this time stamp was generated and it either says “generated upon successful delivery of the electronic message to the recipient” on the delivery log file or “generated upon end of message cycle” on the final log file. The "Log Fingerprint" is an unique reference generated for this file and, right bellow it we find the date and time this time stamp was generated.
This mixture of letters and numbers refer to the most technical part of the time stamp and, in a simplified way, we can say it's the encrypted code for confirming the veracity of the log file data. That verification can be done here. For this time stamp, as it's for demonstration purposes only, the verification doesn't work, but you can always try with one of your own.
In the footer you can find a brief description of Lyme – Log your message and finally, the name of the log file this time stamp refers to.
With Lymes timestamp, you proves the immutability of your file and ensure the Intellectual Property of it in a simple, fast and effective way.
