NAME
       tlsdate-helper -	secure parasitic rdate replacement

SYNOPSIS
       tlsdate-helper  host  port  protocol ca_racket verbose certdir setclock
       showtime	timewarp leapaway proxy-type://proxyhost:proxyport httpmode

DESCRIPTION
       tlsdate-helper is a tool	for setting the	system clock  by  hand	or  by
       communication with the network. It does not set the Real	Time Clock. It
       is designed to be as secure as TLS (RFC 2246) but of course  the	 secu-
       rity  of	 TLS  is  often	 reduced to whichever CA racket	you believe is
       trustworthy. By default,	tlsdate-helper trusts your local CA root store
       -  so  any of these companies could assist in a MITM attack against you
       and you'd be screwed.

       The proxy argument expects HTTP,	SOCKS4A	or SOCKS5  formatted  as  fol-
       lowed:

	http://127.0.0.1:8118
	socks4a://127.0.0.1:9050
	socks5://127.0.0.1:9050

       This  tool is designed to be run	by hand	or as a	system daemon. It must
       be run as root or otherwise have	the proper caps; it will not  be  able
       to  set	the  system time without running as root or another privileged
       user.

BUGS
       It's likely! Let	us know	by contacting jacob@appelbaum.net

       Note that tlsdate(1) is in Beta,	and may	not work as expected.
