Whitepaper: A Hidden Security Danger - Network Timing: The Role of Accurate Timing in Reducing Network Security Risk

by SymmetricomOct 24, 2012

Most anyone who uses a PC no doubt sees the little clock at the bottom of the screen, dutifully ticking off the minutes of the passing day. But chances are they don�t often think about the role that clock plays in the network to which the PC is attached.

In fact, virtually every piece of equipment attached to a data network has a similar clock, although it may not actually show the time of day to anyone. Until, that is, something goes wrong. Should a portion of the network go down, the clocks on every network device suddenly take on added importance.

This paper discusses the role of security and accurate time synchronization: establishes the correct �when� of historical (past) events, allows ordering of future planned events, and enables synchronized, real-time interaction between network devices and processes.

Whitepaper: Accurate Time for Linux Applications

by SymmetricomOct 24, 2012

This white paper explores the challenges in delivering sub-microsecond accurate time to a Linux program, and it will present IEEE 1588 Precise Time Protocol (PTP) solutions and test data showing how to overcome those challenges.

Whitepaper: The Five Dangers of Poor Network Timekeeping

by SymmetricomOct 24, 2012

This white paper provides a compelling argument for having accurate and synchronized time in an IT infrastructure. It discusses the technical and business consequences that can occur when clocks in a network fall out of synch.

Whitepaper: Enterprise Network Time Synchronization Made Easy

by SymmetricomOct 24, 2012

This white paper explores various operational areas of network time servers and the EASY aspects that you should expect when you deploy them. This paper tells you why you need accurate, secure and reliable time and what to look for in a network time server for easy set-up and maintenance.

Whitepaper: The Importance of Network Time Synchronization

by SymmetricomOct 24, 2012

Your network is time stamping files, email, transactions, etc., while your server logs are recording the transactions in case you need that information. Fundamental to all of this is the belief that the time is correct. This paper describes why network time synchronization is critically important.
