Keywords : Distributed operating systems, authentication protocols, network security, clock synchronization protocol

Abstract : This paper describes various ways of providing freshness assurance of authentication protocols. It approaches the issue bu discussing the notion of time in distributed authentication. In the context of authentication, we identify the places where the concept of time is needed, and describe the ways that timeliness of authentication protocols can be achieved.
