    • Property Parent ID changed from to #9675
    • Property Summary changed from Use TLS handshake rather than date header to check time with authorities to Use NETINFO handshake rather than date header to check time with authorities
  • Ticket #17728 – Description

    initial v3  
    55In #4483, we make multiple connections, and use the first connection that starts downloading. If there are multiple connections downloading, we favour authority connections, so that tor can still get a clock check.
    66
    7 But if tor used the date from the TLS handshake, it could abort authority connections sooner. This would place less load on the authorities.
