Discussion

Without sufficient granularity of time stamps, it is not possible to adequately determine the chronological order of records. Time stamps generated by the application include date and time. Granularity of time measurements refers to the degree of synchronization between information system clocks and reference clocks.

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.
