Subject: Re: ITC copped out on UTC again
Can you tell me which protocols use future timestamps in an moving form
(not stored at rest in a certificate in a DANE RR, for instance), which
care about discrepancies of less than 1 minute?
The disman Scheduling MIB (RFC 3231) has future timestamps. They
are defined as dates / times, with provision for how discontinuities
in civil time (whether due to "summer time", time zone changes, or leap
seconds) are to be handled. This definition makes it unlikely that
a sane developer would internally represent them as computed
intervals. Leap second handling is a big non-issue in SNMP-land,
as far as I know.
