Project description


A simple client library for cryptographic timestamping service implementing the protocol from RFC3161.

>>> import rfc3161
>>> certificate = file('data/certum_certificate.crt').read()
>>> rt = rfc3161.RemoteTimestamper('', certificate=certificate)
>>> rt.timestamp(data='John Doe')
('...', '')
>>> rt.check(_, data='John Doe')
(True, '')
>>> rfc3161.get_timestamp(tst)
datetime.datetime(2014, 4, 25, 9, 34, 16)
