Discussion

If time stamps are not consistently applied and there is no common time reference, it is difficult to perform forensic analysis. Time stamps generated by the application include date and time. Time is commonly expressed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), a modern continuation of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), or local time with an offset from UTC.

Fix Text

Configure the Gateway using "ssgconfig" to set multiple ntp sources using menu: 1) Configure system settings >> 1) Configure networking and system time settings. Walk through the query process until being queried for time servers and insert a comma-separated list of ntp time servers.

Check Content

Verify the Gateway (using ssgconfig) is configured to use multiple ntp sources using menu: 1) Configure system settings >> 1) Configure networking and system time settings. Walk through the query process until being queried for time servers and verify the list of ntp servers is correct. If the CA API Gateway is not configured to use multiple ntp sources, this is a finding.
