Multi-Source Common-View Disciplined Clock: A Fail-Safe Clock for Critical Infrastructure Systems
Michael A. Lombardi
The multi-source common-view disciplined clock (MSCVDC) is a recent NIST invention designed to support critical infrastructure timing systems that require a verifiably accurate and fail-safe clock. This paper introduces the MSCVDC, provides a technical description of how it works, and discusses its reliability, redundancy, security, and performance. It also discusses the possibility of a commercially available MSCVDC product.
