Satellite-Synchronized Network Clock Released by SEL

September 16, 2014By
The SEL-2488 satellite-synchronized network clock.

SEL has released a new network clock designed for critical infrastructure and harsh environments. Model SEL-2488 receives GNSS time signals and distributes precise time via multiple output protocols, including IRIG-B and NTP. The SEL-2488 provides time-delay compensation for antenna cables and output cables on per-port basis to further optimize time distribution accuracy. For security, the clock features the Syslog Ethernet standard... read more

Mitre Product Detects Timing Spoofing Attacks

August 4, 2014By

Mitre’s new Time Anomaly Detection Appliqué (TADA) protects modern digital systems from spoofing attacks that can corrupt time source signals. Successful spoofing attacks could result in navigational systems going haywire and grounding airplanes, jumbling of buying and selling orders, a shutdown of the stock market, or power-grid failures. Infrastructure and defense systems often rely on GPS’s unencrypted position, navigation, and timing (PNT) signal as their source of accurate time,... read more
