epoch conversion tool

What is epoch time?

Short description from Wikipedia:
Unix time, or POSIX time, is a system for describing points in time, defined as the number of seconds elapsed since midnight proleptic Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) of January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds.

Where do you find with respect to IAM parlance?
I have found that Sailpoint's IdentityIQ uses this convention for all dates. examples are create date, expiration date etc.

So if you want to understand what are the exact dates?
