Google is a pretty great tool for this kind of things.
Here is one of the results I found:

As far as I can tell from the source, it uses the method I suggested,
decreasing timestamp one by one, and it finds a fingerprint that ends in a
given string of bytes. This last part is not exactly what you need, so
you’ll have to adjust the test yourself, but other than that it seems to be
a reasonable “plug-and-play” solution for your task.
