reference::=version key timestamp
timestamp::=mantissa exponent

A reference consists of a version, a RIPEMD-160 hash key, and a time stamp. The version is a cardinal and must be equal to one. The RIPEMD-160 hash key contains 20 bytes (160 bits). The timestamp indicates the time of publication expressed in Logiweb time, i.e. as the number of seconds that have elapsed since International Atomic Time (TAI) 00:00:00 on Modified Julian Day (MJD) 0. The number of seconds is expressed on the form m*10^(-e) where m and e are cardinals.
