What is CertiPhoto ?

Originally developed as part of forensics court-expert activities, CertiPhoto can date a photo securely and ensure that it has not been tampered with since the shot was taken. CertiPhoto hence gives probative value to your photographs by establishing a digital evidence of a visual situation, in a particular place, at a particular time.

Each picture you take with this app is encrypted, geolocated, stored on a secure remote server and then sent in a signed email to the user along with a certificate. This certificate is an unfalsifiable PDF document, signed and timestamped by a trusted authority, and has legal value in EU countries.

The electronic signature [must be] uniquely linked to the signatory, be capable of identifying the signatory, be created using means that signatories can maintain under their sole control, be linked to the electronic document to be authenticated. This is to ensure that any subsequent change in that document is detectable. ( Directive 1999/93/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of December 13th 1999 on a Community framework for electronic signatures ).

Take a picture

Take a picture easily as you would with any Android smartphone, and add a comment to your photo if you want to.


The app geolocates your picture in seconds by GPS. You can also certify a non-geolocated picture if no GPS signal is found.


Confirm your choices and send the picture to the server. No need to wait if you want to take another picture. That's all!


More than just an app!

CertiPhoto is a complete information system with a proprietary storage cloud,
a scalable API and multiple database management user interfaces.

Thanks to its modular design, the mobile app can easily and securely interface with your company's data system.

You also can drive a private certification instance running your own certificates (software or HSM based).

Secured process

CertiPhoto uses advanced and proven techniques to build a secure channel between your smartphone and certification servers.

Each certificate is self-contained, which means all cryptographic data is embedded to be checked in the future with no limit in time. There is no dependency whatsoever with a third party which could be potentially be corrupted, as a Blockchain for instance.
