But why couldn't NIST sign it?
I send my video to NIST and a few seconds later they send me a file signed
with NIST's private key that says "we received your video and made this
hash of it at time X". Then if somebody produces a different version of the
video with a time stamp later than X on it I can produce the signed hash of
the earlier video proving the later one must be
generally agreed that NIST is honest.
