SC Note: Qualification of RSA products to account for changes in the Daylight Saving Time schedule
A provision of the United States Energy Policy Act of 2005 extends Daylight Saving Time (DST) in the United States by four weeks, beginning in 2007. Several countries (such as Canada and Bermuda) are also implementing the same DST change; other countries may decide to make similar changes to DST rules.
It is assumed that the appropriate operating system patches will be installed by customers to account for these changes to DST. RSA software relies on the correct UTC time provided by the operating system.
Note: The patch for Microsoft Windows 2000 is not available from Microsoft without an extended product maintenance contract.
