|Issue||Will the US Energy Policy Act of 2005 Daylight Savings Time extension in March 2007 affect RSA BSAFE products?|
RSA BSAFE cryptography products do not invoke time and date services in the public API, though these products use time as a source of bits (for example, for gathering entropy and RSA blinding operations). As the actual value of the time is irrelevant, the Daylight Savings Time change will not affect the operation of the cryptography products.
For the BSAFE certificate management, SSL security protocol products, and Micro Edition Suite (MES), though certificates may expire slightly sooner or later than originally anticipated, the time change will not affect the operation of these RSA BSAFE products.
