I am a PhD student and I have been working on a survey on long-term authenticity and proof of existence. I have found many solutions (e.g. ERS, Patricia Trees, etc), projects (e.g. ArchiSig, Prokopius, HP's Content Integrity Service) and even acts (Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Directive 2001/115/EC) but few real life examples in which long-term archiving is required and was already used.

May someone point some concrete examples?
