Will trusted timestamping feature be added for both LibreOffice files and PDF files to protect files for lifetime in the future versions of LibreOffice?
RESOLVED DUPLICATE of tracker bug 84881.

This is not exact duplicate of bug 84881. Because I meant for both OpenDocument and PDF files, not just PDF files.

Well, the best is to split such requests as PDF and OpenDocuments are different formats and need separate work, commits and such. Having one bug for all is not a good idea. Instead of reopening this one, I would file new bugs for OpenDocuments only. Just my 2 cents.
Well, before this can be worked on, I suppose there needs to be a specification for timestamps in ODF documents.
As far as I am aware, there is no notion of digitally signed (RFC 3161) timestamps in the format, right?
So a first step would be to draw up a specification.
And, yes, this should then go into a separate "bug" (i.e. feature request)
since the PDF issue is fixed (see bug 84881) let's modify the title of this one regarding ODF.
I'm not familiar with digital signature so I ask to the reporter if this request is still valid in latest LibO 5.4.4 release

Dear Yan Fiz,
Could you please answer the question above?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' once the question is answered
Yes this is still not implemented, but looks like a valid enhancement request.
Hello Xisco Faulí,
Sorry for my late replying. After I saw my bug marked unconfirmed, I have given up following it. I noticed it is reactivated now.
When I reported this bug, I had a digital certificate. But it expired, and I didn't renew it. So I can't test it. I have LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 installed on my Windows and it says 'Maintain a list of Time Stamping Authority URLs to be used for digital signatures in PDF export.' in Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> Security -> TSAs. What I understand form that description and from Samuel Mehrbrodt's comment is, trusted timestamping still cannot be applied for OpenDocument files.
