Secure Timeliness: On the Cost of Non-Synchronized Clocks


The establishment of event timeliness in a distributed system by reliance on an assumption of closely synchronized clocks may introduce security flaws. We present a method for determining the message cost associated with the relaxation of such an assumption in protocols. The method is used to examine multi-domain authentication protocols and to establish… (More)
