Ascertia’s Long-term Archive and Notary (LTAN) Evidence Server is a valuable tool for organisations that need to comply with regulatory requirements, protect electronic document integrity, improve efficiency, and reduce costs.
The server is compliant with Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) LTANS specifications, which are the industry standard for long-term electronic document archival. ADSS LTANS also supports the use of digital signatures and timestamping to ensure the authenticity and integrity of these documents. It uses a variety of security measures to protect document confidentiality, integrity and availability while automating the archival and retrieval process.
– Documents are protected long term, months, years and even decades into the future
– Internally, within business applications, local file systems, or secure cloud platforms
– ADSS LTANS Evidence Server is fully compliant with Request for Comments (RFC) 4998 XMLERS
– ADSS LTANS Evidence Server helps organisations meet strict regulations that require electronic documents to be archived long-term.
– Ascertia’s ADSS LTANS supports organisational integrity through streamlined document management processes by automating the archiving and retrieval process of electronic documents.
– It can help enterprises reduce the costs associated with document storage and management by storing electronic documents in a secure, centralised location.
We are always searching for ways to enhance how we support our extensive network of manufacturers. Through Ascertia’s bulk signing capabilities, we have accelerated projects and raised our high levels of customer care even higher.

Long-term archive servers
An LTAN Server is a system designed to store data for extended time periods, up to and including decades and even centuries. These servers often store data that requires preservation for future generations, such as historical documents, scientific data, and financial records.
Notary Servers provide secure and tamper-proof digital document storage. They use various technology to ensure stored documents cannot be altered or deleted without leaving a record in an audit trail. These servers are often used to store important documents, such as contracts, wills, and patents.
Ascertia’s ADSS LTANS Evidence Server combines both functionalities into one product. It stores data for extended periods, uses advanced security measures to protect data and can be scaled to store significant data volumes.
ADSS LTANS is not a standalone server – it is a software application that organisations can install on various servers. This means you can use existing infrastructure to store your data, saving you costs.
Additionally, it is specifically designed for long-term archiving and notarisation. ADSS LTANS Evidence Server has features that are not typically found on its standalone counterparts. This includes the ability to refresh timestamp evidence records using new algorithms and updated PKI certificates.
Interoperability and flexibility
Organisations can use multiple archive profiles for varying business requirements or document types. There are various retention policies available, including the option of auto-deleting archived objects at the end of their retention period.
Flexible data storage
Organisations have several options to store Archive Data Objects and Evidence Record Syntax (ERS) Data, including the following:
ADSS LTANS Server can be built to use various platforms. This is achieved through Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) from different vendors, as well as multiple internal or external Time Stamp Authorities (TSAs) and Certificate Authorities (CAs).
Multiple integration options are available. This includes high-level client Application Programming Interface (API) in Java and .Net, driving HTTP and web-service protocols, as well as ADSS Auto File Processor (AFP)-based watched folder processing.
Security is a top priority. Provenance data can be retained within the evidence record:
Because cryptographic algorithms become weaker over time, the ADSS LTANS Evidence Server supports the ability to refresh the evidence records using new algorithms and updated public key infrastructure (PKI) certificates. This ensures documents are safe and secure long into the future.
