Qubes-Whonix whonixcheck sanity test for 'prevent dom0 telling Qubes-Whonix VMs the time'
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When prevent dom0 telling Qubes-Whonix VMs the time T397 is implemented, whonixcheck should add a sanity test to see if that won't break over time.


  • qubes-whonix 12's /etc/qubes-rpc/qubes.SetDateTime[.anondist] can forward everything dom0 is [not] telling to a file.
  • From there whonixcheck can check if that file exists. If it exists, then T397 is either broken or not yet implemented.

/etc/qubes-rpc/qubes.SetDateTime.anondist: dom0 should not tell us its time. But if it does, create a file /var/run/qubes-whonix/qubes.SetDateTime so whonixcheck could warn in case this file exists. -

Added an info level message when running with --verbose if dom0 is telling us the time. As long as is unsolved. -
