Accurate network time is important for many use cases. In the security context strong synchronisation is important when correlating activities recorded in a wide range of logging systems. When measuring the one-way delay or latency between two points on the network, having accurate timestamps helps give the most reliable measurements. In this session we’ll discuss:

  • Are there other use cases for networked time services for Janet-connected sites?
  • How does Network Time Protocol (NTP) work, and how accurate is it?
  • What NTP server infrastructure is deployed on Janet, and how should you use it?
  • What is the accuracy and implementation / deployment status of the emerging Precise Time Protocol (PTP)?
